Grants Pass Post Office

PO Description: 

Each post office record includes one or more documents. Each document may be displayed (by clicking on the title) and may be downloaded. The documentation has been provided from government records, copied for SOHS by Ben Truwe.

Originally in honor of U.S. Grant's victory at Vicksburg, the name Grants Pass was given to the mountain pass N of the present city. Next Grants Pass was applied to a nearby stage stop, later to the post office on the railroad and finally to the new town. 

Feb. 12, 1885, by act of the state legislature, Grants Pass was transferred out of Jackson County.
