There’s A Fully Restored 1912 Post Office In Ohio And It Has Its Own Island
Here in Ohio, there’s always something new to explore—if you know where to look, that is. If you consider yourself an Ohio history buff, or you simply enjoy stumbling upon hidden gems, there’s a little-known museum hiding in Logan County near Indian Lake State Park you’ll want to find. The Orchard Island Post Office is a fully restored post office from the early 1900s situated on its very own island in the middle of Indian Lake. It’s a little-known piece of living history few Ohioans know about.
