The Little Post Office that Could: Lake Cicott, Indiana

Passing through on the Heritage Trail, I couldn’t help but notice the smallest Post Office I have ever seen in Lake Cicott, Indiana.

Perched on the edge of a lovely, large lake, with signs for horseback riding and camping all over the place, it is mostly in the middle of, um, nothing.  Really, lots of woods (we even saw a deer!) and that was about it…but isn’t it just the cutest thing?

    Oh no! I am so very sorry to hear that. I hope the building can at least be reused in some way–and not just left to rot. Love that little building! If there’s anything I can ever do, please let me know!!!

  2. Its on the list of indiana post offices to be closed, my wife and I signed a petition to keep it open but didnt help, it will be missed whenever it does close

    @Tanisha and @Jenny — Ha ha! It really was the cutest thing. I just wanted to pick it up and put it in my pocket. I can’t imagine working in such a tiny place — I really want to know how many people have to sit inside that one!

  4. This is super adorable. One of those things that only people who love small towns could appreciate.
    Happy Sits Day!
