Historic Holiday Experience


During an annual Old Fashioned Christmas celebration recently held in Melbeta, NE, local citizens had the chance to enjoy Victorian era-style events and treats. The Melbeta Post Office participated in the festivities for the 3rd year in a row by holding an open house for visitors.


Besides enjoying appetizing treats such as cookies, cocoa and coffee, customers had the chance to view an antique stamp collection, historic mailboxes, and have their mail postmarked the old fashioned way – with a hand stamp.


Among the customer who visited the office was a couple that rode their tandem bicycle 13 miles for the chance to experience the historic experience at the Melbeta Post Office.

  1. It’s nice to see a post office enjoying the season. I didn’t hear anything from my coworkers in the bigger office, and the management just seem to be more worried about us not closing early on Christmas Eve. Otherwise, we heard nothing.
