New Publication Celebrates Mason County Postal History
Wednesday, July 9, 2008 • Posted July 9, 2008

How many post offices have there been in Mason County since its inception one hundred and fifty years ago? Where were they located? Who “put up” the mail? The answers to these questions are found in the latest publication of the Mason County Historical Commission. Julius DeVos, longtime commission member and historical researcher, has compiled the history of Mason County’s various post offices into a newbook entitled Mail’s Up! The Mason County Post Offices. This brand new publicationwill be available on Saturday, July 12, during the RoundUp festivities on the Mason County Court House lawn.

Mail’s Up contains a map pinpointing the location of each postal site. Biographical information for each postmaster or postmistress adds personal interest to each entry.

This first printing of fifty copies includes a specially designed postmark which commemorates Mason County’s Sesquicentennial Celebration. The Mason County Historical Commission is pleased to offer this new publication during this special year in the history of Mason County.
