Scottsville, New York is a quaint little village in the town of Wheatland. You’ll find this one located in the southwestern corner of Monroe County. The village founded their first post office in 1820. At that time, it was located at 7 Rochester Street, in the home of their first postmaster Dr. Freeman Edson. From his house, he operated both the local medical practice and the Scottsville Post Office.
As the position of Postmaster changed hands, it appears that the location of the Scottsville Post Office did, too. Each Postmaster was allowed to choose where their office would be. As a result, the post office moved around a lot and at one point was even in a liquor store.

The Post Office you’ll see today in Scottsville was build in 1961, and the plain brick facade and font on the building seem to match that era.
