 The post office is the only surviving example of a 19th century single-function post office in the county. ​ A simple frame structure of square footprint, it exhibits bargeboard trim.  An original privy and coal shed stand in the rear yard.  The house and post office have been lovingly preserved. The post office is the only surviving example of a 19th century single-function post office in the county. ​ A simple frame structure of square footprint, it exhibits bargeboard trim.  An original privy and coal shed stand in the rear yard.  The house and post office have been lovingly preserved.
