Someone really liked their post office

This is about a mile or two outside Huxley, Alberta June 22, 2017. I got a bit of a chuckle about someone posting a historical marker to remember a Post Office that only existed for four years. Having a Post Office was important though. Mail is a Federal matter and having a post office meant your place was now on the map, your corner of the world meant something because you received Federal recognition. These institutions were very important at one time.
