Tolo 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.

Entrepeneurs moved the Tolo post office away from Willow Springs 3 miles N to the Rogue and SP tracks near the site of old Fort Lane (1853-1871). Although Tolo was revitalized as "construction city" by the Ray's rock quarry and dam construction and the post office reopened, low population led to the closure of the post office and railroad depot in 1918.
