The Postal History Museum is once again open and ready for visitors | Allen County
The Postal History Museum is once again open and ready to welcome visitors to learn a little more about this history of the United States Post. The Delphos Museum was closed during the pandemic, so they decided to use that time to expand to the 2nd floor of the building. They had a lot of items that were in storage, so they renovated the space to show off lots of stamp displays and give people the chance to read the mail that came and went from the United States during the Holocaust. This is just one of three museums in the United States that sheds light on the history of the Postal Service, and people are always surprised to learn of the mailman’s growing role since its inception.
âThe postal service has encompassed almost every aspect of life,â says Gary Levitt, curator, Delphos Museum of Postal History. âFrom organ sweating to organ transplants. At one time, the post office was the banking system in the United States. We thought it was important for people to understand how much the postal service has played in their lives in so many different ways.
The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday to Friday. and by appointment for groups.
