Teeny, tiny Post Office - Patjens Post Office, Mt. Pleasant.

Patjen's Post Office, Mt. Pleasant, SC
I've featured this little sweetie before but couldn't resist grabbing another shot. I am gradually collecting quite a series of tiny, little old post office buildings. This one is the Patjens Post Office in the old village of Mt. Pleasant.
In 1899, the Patjens family built this small office adjacent to their store on Church Street, to serve as the post office in Mount Pleasant. The Patjens family served as postmasters until 1917. Patjens Post Office has been owned and maintained by the Alhambra Garden Club since 1971, when it was moved to Edwards Park. The club restored the building in 2001.
