Ochopee, FL


This is the smallest post office in the U.S. It's in Ochopee, FL. The cool thing is that it's still an operating post office. Story goes that the original one burned down so they used the next building they had which was this irrigation shed. From what I've read, it can fit 2-3 customers in there but it's crowded, it has a nice commemorative stamp collection and when the postmaster needs to use the restroom, the closest one is at the Subway three miles away.

I know Linsey. I asked myself the same thing. I thought it was some redneck joke. It's as real as the day though. It's in the middle of nowhere, hour and a half away, swampland mostly. I'm going back to document how this place does it.
