The Post Office

The Scottdale Post Office, 2013

A post office has been here since the 1860s.The town was called Fountain Mills and the original frame structure was in the Water Street area by the railroad tracks.

  • In 1874 the town was incorporated and then called Scottdale.
  • The post office moved circa 1900 to the Eicher Graft building on Pittsburgh Street in the section where the computer repair store is today, two doors left of Westmor Insurance.
  • In 1936 the A. Overholt home on the corner of Pittsburgh and Chestnut streets was razed.
  • The cornerstone was laid at that time and the current post office opened in 1938. The 1938 building was a Class A facility needed to handle the volume of postal shipping created by the Mennonite Publishing House.
