Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in or just neat postcards

Coldiron and Wallins Creek Post Offices

We’re in Harlan County KY, recording post offices.

First for this day was the Post Office at Coldiron KY.  The first PO here was established in 1928.  Mary Coldiron was the postmistress, but the reference book I use indicates that Coldiron got its name from one Elihu Coldiron, and early settler.

And here is the Wallins Creek Post Office.  The first PO was set up in 1866.  Wallins Creek, according to the place name book, is named after a pioneer surveyor who was slain by indigenous warriors in this area.
