Love Letters
1 x 1 quilt block

109 E. Rutherford

The carved date of 1924 on this yellow brick building commemorates its opening as the Landrum Post Office.  

 

The post office later moved to a building on South Shamrock Avenue before moving to its current location at 500 E. Rutherford Street.

 

Several businesses have occupied the space in the intervening years including a laundromat and cafe-bookstore.  

 

PJ Steinman opened her clothing boutique here on April 1, 2008.

     

The Love Letters block celebrates the romantic correspondences which were received and delivered by the Landrum postal service.
