Beautiful Post Office: Burnt Cabins, PA

Here's a beautiful post office from rural PA that's actually not on the possible discontinuance list! This was taken Saturday afternoon, so I couldn't ask the Postmaster (or find anyone else to tell me) the history of the office or the town. But just look at it!

Burnt Cabins, PA:

I'm not going to say anything more, since I think the office speaks for itself. Hope you enjoyed!


  1. Indeed! It is beautiful, it speaks for itself, and I have been there! Twice, in fact!

  2. I grew up in Burnt Cabins- my parents owned this building at one point and my grandmother was the postmistress for some time, followed by her sister. We were often responsible for seasonal window displays. Very fond memories here, and so glad I stumbled upon this while searching for information about my hometown.

  3. I've been working on my family geneology and found out that my 2nd great grandfather, David Welch, was the postmaster of Burnt Cabins in 1844. He lived in Bedford County at that time and was a farmer. He eventually moved to Oquawka, Illinois and became the Constable there around 1853. Unfortunately he was killed in the line of duty in 1859 and buried in Illinois. I hope to one day visit this beautiful town.
