The Kneeland Post Office
Shame to hear the Kneeland Post Office might be closing. I had a little bit of experience there back in the late 70s. A gal I met, Becky, used to live next door to it and her mother was the postmaster. What a cute little place it was.
Becky and I only hanged around together for a month or two, but there were some memorable events. I recall her calling me to come rescue her and her daughters after a fairly heavy snowfall. I took my four wheel drive truck up there and brought them into town to do some grocery shopping.
As far as the post office went, I remember once when the mail contractor for all points southeast of the post office had his car break down. I think he was Becky's brother or uncle. He drove a long route to the outlying ranches delivering mail. Becky asked me if I could help him get his route done so we got in my truck and drove him miles and miles around to the outlying ranches to drop off the mail.
Neat job that guy had and I would think it would have been fun to run that post office. But all things must come to an end eventually. I can't imagine why the owner of the building would want to end the Post Office's lease. What else might he have in mind for the building?
