Sunday in Iowa...

The U.S. Post Office in Beacon, Iowa
Population: 494

Everyone rents a small mailbox inside the post office in small towns like this; it's a gathering place for the local news and gossip as well as the mail.  We liked the friendly facade, with bright red geraniums in the flower boxes.


  1. I've always loved your beautiful Sunday pics but I must say this one totally steals my heart !

  2. Somehow this is how I picture the post office in Crozel, Virginia that is featured in so many of Rita Mae Brown's Mrs. Murphy mysteries.

    1. Yes, that's what I think. I do like Rita Mae Brown's series also.

  3. Great Photo.
    Love seeing photos like this; especially Old photos of some of the old country churches. There used to be an old church at Knoke (not far from Pomeroy, Ia.) that I used to go to..waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back when :}(no longer standing) :{

  4. Just lovely! I'd like to visit a place like that some day :).
