Romeville Post Oﬃce
This post office was originally located at Colomb in St. James Parish from 1889 to 1915 when it was discontinued. It was later named Romeville Post Office.
Post offices emerged inside of commissaries where people congregated and visited monthly for supplies. Around 1900, post offices were separated from commissaries and became individual buildings.
