Description

An inspection report for the Ferndale Post Office conducted on February 26, 1946. The inspection was conducted by A. F. White, Post Office Inspector for the Bureau of the Chief Inspector. The Ferndale Post Office was roughly 400 square feet and contained 180 mailboxes. The size of the post office reflects the small town nature of Ferndale. In 2009, the post office was closed by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS). The residents of Ferndale gathered together and successfully petitioned its reopening and the post office is now staffed by local volunteers. This was a compromise between the residents and USPS that helped to mitigate the annual cost of running the small office.
