Post Offices

Post Offices

Many of these early post offices started in a homesteader's shack.  Homesteaders, being optimists, would often build other buildings such as stores, dance halls, saloons, blacksmith shops, or newspaper offices and a town was born.  Each town had its supporters who felt that it was inevitable that their town would grow into a great metropolis. However, following the selection of Circle as county seat in 1919, and hard financial times in agriculture following World War I, most of the small  towns disappeared.  Today it is hard to imagine that they ever existed when one looks at the country.
