Post Office exhibit at Heritage Center

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - According to the postman's creed, they won't be stopped by snow, nor rain, nor heat, and in North Dakota that has been a challenge in the last hundred years.

North Dakotans used to have more than 800 post offices to keep them connected to the outside world. Now that number is down to about 300.

A new exhibit at the North Dakota Heritage Center is enshrining the history of North Dakota's post offices. From the oldest to the smallest.

It also includes a buggy that was used to deliver mail back in the early days.
