Hookerton North Carolina Post Office, “This Building Dedicated to Public Service 1969”

Top photograph:  The Hookerton North Carolina Post Office, a square brick building in a clean 1960’s style commercial building design found all over North Carolina in rural towns and townships.  The brick buildings feature a 24 hour access lobby where post office boxes are built into the stark, white walls.  To one side is a window or opening in the wall where post office business is conducted Monday through Friday at posted hours.  Most in the brick building design erected in this time period feature chrome silver raised lettering on the front of the building, signaling the building’s official use, “United States Post Office,” and the township in which it serves, (here, Hookerton North Carolina).

This post office features a dedication plaque proclaiming the year the building was dedicated, 1969; then the President of the United States in that year, Richard M. Nixon, and the Postmaster General, Winton M. Blount.

  1. I have that sign!! I don’t know if someone stole it, or if was taken legitimately but I bought it at a garage sale. The owner said she’d bought it at a antiques store. If anyone has information on this sign, please contact me at jims.computerrepair@yahoo.com
    Thanks
