Post Office: Hastings, New York 13076
Hastings is a town in Oswego County, located right in-between the northern up-turn of Lake Ontario and the city of Syracuse. It’s a small rural town that I happened to be passing through and by chance saw the post office. This one handles zip code 13076, but I couldn’t find any particular history of note about this spot.
The build is newer, and there seems to be some residential apartments in the back of the building.
However, I noticed over the front door, there’s a real cool vintage looking signed that appears hand-painted. Maybe it was just my adventurous self hoping this was some historical beam rescued from a previous post office in town. But, who knows.
I did discover though, that the town of Hastings is known for one of the early prominent settlers here, named Hastings Curtiss. He served as the first Postmaster for the town of Central Square. So, there’s a little bit of cool history in here at least!
