We take for granted how neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night keeps our letter carriers from making their rounds, but have you considered what a hassle it would be to drive a wagon to town to pick up your mail? We will learn how rural families in Bartholomew County enjoyed the nation’s first rural free delivery postal service. You will even get to design your own stamp! Our Saturday Samplers are monthly family friendly workshops catered towards small children.
