Sentimental Sunday: Old Post Office in Downtown Sandusky
This building in downtown Sandusky, at the intersection of Washington and Jackson Streets, served as the United States Post Office from 1927 until 1986. I am sure my childhood mail carrier, George Orr, and our family friend Clarence Seavers. both passed by this window many times during their long careers at the Post Office.
Now the former Sandusky Post Office is home to the Merry Go Round Museum. The Museum features an operating carousel, which is fun for visitors of all ages.
The display below pictures carousel stamps, which were issued when stamps for first class mail cost twenty five cents.
A highlight of the lobby of the Merry Go Round Museum is a mural of Sandusky.
A visit to Sandusky's Merry Go Round Museum provides an experience that is both educational and entertaining, while the vintage carousel animals will remind us of the pasttimes of our ancestors.
