Smallest Mailing Office - Post Office

The Silver Lake post office is right next to Our Lady of the Pines, Smallest Church in 48 States, which you list as being in Horse Shoe Run, WV

[A.J. Lewis, 08/15/2011]

Our town name discrepancy probably came from the old vellum post cards where we first saw both buildings immortalized. The church was labeled in Horse Shoe Run, perhaps an outdated name or unincorporated area. Back then they called it a Post Office, not a "Mailing Office." Google maps shows it as Eglon, WV, but what do they know?
