Not your average Post Office

Carcross post office used by Canadian online fabric shop Woven Modern Fabric Gallery


Some neat information on the Post Office where I mail all the fabric.

The Carcross Post Office first opened on this site on June 12, 1902, in a building that also served as the telegraph office and the NWMP detachment. That building existed prior to 1899, when the NWMP moved into it. The first postmaster was W.J. Scott. It is uncertain what happened to that structure, but the present post office stands on the same site and has been there since 1910. This is the oldest post office in continuous use in Canada.

I love sending your fabric from this tiny post office and our Post mistress Carolin is always so helpful and cheery. If you are ever in the Yukon check out this historical post office.
