Post Office: Sandy Creek, New York 13145
The Village of Sandy Creek is a small one in Oswego County, located in a town with the same name. The population for the town is around a few thousand, with well under a third of those residing in the village.
According to the Sandy Creek History website, this post office location was built on August 6, 1961. While I believe it probably took more than a single day to construct the building, I’m guessing that means August 6th was the day they completed it. However, this one came long after the original founding of the town. Their website also shares that the original Post Office was founded on March 3, 1865. That first one was maintained by Postmaster Julius S. Robbins, a local merchant. Robbins ran that location out his store across from the Central Hotel.
With this newer location operating side-by-side the laundromat, it totally maintains a vintage, small-town Main Street appearance. I was on a heck of a tour on this day, so I didn’t get out to go up close. With plenty of street parking available, I snagged this shot while parking, and then continued on.
