Jacksonville 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.

The oldest continuing operating post office in Jackson County. The gold rush and farmers and merchants who followed the miners caused the development of many other communities and several post offices in the Applegate area. But Jacksonville, now a historic landmark and cultural mecca, is the area's shopping center and has the only independent post office.
