The Mail Room

The central focus of this room is the mail wagon owned by R. Hood Reynolds, a Grove City rural mail carrier; it is believed to be one of the last in existence in Pennsylvania.   For Reynolds to drive his route of 28 miles, six days a week, whether rain, sleet, or snow, he was paid $100, and he had to maintain the wagon he owned and the 3 horses he kept available to drive it.  The wagon, donated by the Reynolds Family, was restored by Uri Byler who discovered its original green color during the restoration.  The rest of the contents of the Mail Room serve to enhance what the post office has meant to the community over the years and the many personnel that have been a part of the history of postal services in Grove City.
