Post office returns to serve Harmony

Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

The Harmony Museum's Wagner House became the new home of the town's village post office, which opened Wednesday, filling a void left when Harmony's post office closed in 2009.

“We thought it would be a convenience to have a post office back,” said John Ruch, president of Historic Harmony. “The more we looked into it, the more appealing it seemed to be.”

The post office, which had been located in Harmony's Municipal Building, closed after its lease expired.

“It's good to have a post office that has Harmony's name on it again,” said Sandy Ferrainola of Jackson. For the past four years, Ferrainola has had to travel to Zelienople's post office to do any mailing or shipping.

Village post offices are operated by businesses and provide limited services. The Harmony Museum Village Post Office is the first in Butler County.

It will follow the Museum Shop's operating hours: noon to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday; 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday. It's closed Monday.

People will be able to deposit mail in the sidewalk collection box outside the building, said Postal Service retail specialist Nita Riggs.
