Old Post Office, Valona

This small vernacular structure once served as Valona’s post office. It’s located on the waterfront. Beth Walters-Parker writes: My great-grandmother, Lewis Burrows Graham was the postmistress at Valona and worked in that post office six days a week up until the week before she died at age 96.

    If you haven’t also done so, find Mrs. Ben Graham. She was the postmistress there for a long time. She was also the “backbone” at the principal’s office. A grand lady, for sure. She had a daughter about my age. Not sure if the daughter is still around. I’m 80 years old and she was about the same age. Good luck and thanks for what you do.
