  • Friday, November 24, 2017 - 9:30am

    Open November 24, 2017 through April 14, 2018

    This exhibit encompasses a significant era of U.S. postal history.  Colonial mail delivery provided access to information, the bedrock of our democracy.  However, as the U.S. began to take shape, so did the U.S. postal service.  Between 1790 and 1890 stamps changed, delivery changed, and postage rates went down.
