Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

More Kentucky Post Offices, one for sale.

Here we go!  First, it’s the formal, official post office in Harlan. The cornerstone (‘way on the left corner) states: A W Mellon Secretary of the Treasury James A Wetmore Acting Supervising Architect 1931.   Harlan first got a post office in 1828, but it had to be named Harlan – after an early family – rather than Mount Pleasant, as it was known at the time.  That name conflicted with another location in the state. So, the song would have been “Goin’ Back to Mount Pleasant”?
