Patjens Post Office - Mt. Pleasant

Patjens Post Office, Mt. Pleasant, SC   
With winter evenings dark so early I make the most of the photo-ops I find on my weekend walks and I found so many scenic finds in the quaint old village area of Mt. Pleasant. What a cute little Post Office!
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.
