The smallest Post Office in the USA

 The smallest Post Office in the USA

In the USA, there is a tiny, unassuming shed, which is, in fact, a post office! Yes, it is a result of a story that started on a seemingly unlucky note.  

In 1953, a fire destroyed Ochopee's post office.  So it was temporarily shifted to a nearby storage facility used for irrigation pipes. But it since became a permanent, fully functional post office, serving 3 county areas, namely Collier, Seminole, and Miccosukee. The total area of the post office is just 61 square feet!  It is located on U.S. Route 41 in Collier County near Ochopee, Florida.  Its ZIP code is 34141.  Because of the fire relocation, this post office got into records, coming to be known as the smallest post office in all of America.

I'm lucky to get this post office cancellation on a card.
