The Smallest Post Office in the USA

 

 

You think you’ve seen everything?

Chances are you haven’t seen a post office like the one in Ochopee, a fun little day trip about an hour and a half away from Ocean’s Reach.

This 61-square foot facility measures 8′ 4″ X 7′ 3″ and is officially the smallest post office in the country.  The tiny building used to serve as a storage shed for irrigation pipes for a nearby tomato farm, but was pressed into service as a post office after the Ochopee general store and post office were destroyed in a fire in 1953.

And it’s been hunkering down ever since.  Thousands of visitors now stop by every year just to get a postmark!  The post office is located at 3800 Tamiami Trail East, close to the Big Cypress National Preserve.
