The residents in and around Rocky Hill are still enjoying the conveniences of a post office in their own community, after almost 100 years.
According to Assistant Sales and Service Associate Laura Lucas, it was first a general store in 1915, then became a full service post office in the early 1920's. At some point it was converted into a bank then back to a post office.
The facility's operating hours have recently been reduced due to a decline in business activity over the years. With all the cuts that the Postal Service have made, offices like the one in Rocky Hill are in danger of being shut down completely.
Mrs. Lucas encourages not only the residents of Rocky Hill to stop by, but everyone in the surrounding area to take advantage of their products and services.
She said the facility is a full service post office where you can send packages, get money orders, and rent boxes. Six month boxes are available for $25 and one year boxes are $50. They also offer special services like certified and registered mail.
The operating hours are Mon-Fri 9am-1pm, and Saturday 10am-12pm. The office is located at 1793 Rocky Hill Road in "downtown" Rocky Hill, 42163. Call 270-749-3213.
