Union Creek 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 post office was in a store on the upper reaches of the Rogue River near the mouth of Union Creek on the road to Crater Lake ten miles from the west entrance of the National Park and about twelve miles north of Prospect. The post office and resort took their name from Union Creek which was named for Union Peak in the Park. 

Already served by Prospect for half the year, Union Creek's seasonal post office was discontinued April 1945 but it really did not reopen after closing in the fall of 1944.
