Old Station in Shasta County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Old Station Post Office
After this area suffered heavy devastation – the 1915 eruption of Mt. Lassen and the resulting flood and mudslides – Mary built a small store and post office. She was appointed postmaster in 1931 where she served for ten years. Bernice Olmsted served the next four years and from 1945 to 1947 Arthur and Annabelle Young held this post. In 1947, Florence Doan was appointed and moved the post office to Doan’s camp. This building has since been used for storage. It was rumored as the smallest post office in the U.S.
