Ochopee Post Office.

Smallest Post Office in U.S.

The lady postmaster said she serves about 80 Native American families who live on the Seminole Reservation in and around the Everglades. She was very nice and had postcards for sale of her smallest post office. It's located right on the Tamiami Trail, about a mile west of the world famous Skunk Ape Research Center.

Smallest Post Office in the United States

Too small to go inside. Pre-stamped postcards are only $1, not bad. No bathroom, so it might be closed for a few minutes from time to time.

Tiny post office.

Nation's Smallest Post Office

I wanted to share a photo I took of the nations smallest post office since I did not see a photo of this on your site.

Tip: Do not go at lunch time. It is closed for lunch. My guess is the need for a bathroom break?
