United States Postal Museum

202 East Michigan Avenue,
Marshall, MI 49068
The museum is located in the basement of the United States Post Office and can be accessed through the entrance on Madison Street. The Post Office building, a Greek Revival architectural style with a copper roof, was constructed in 1932 of Marshall sandstone. The interior may be viewed during regular post office hours. The idea for the downstairs museum occurred during Marshall's 1987 historic home tour. At that time postmaster Mike Schragg displayed a number of old postal artifacts throughout the building. Many people thought that the entire post office was a museum rather than an official working post office. After the tour Mike Schragg began organizing the collection of postal antiques in the basement. One of the many features of the museum is a store front post office from the 1890's. Another large item is a horse drawn mail buggy. The buggy, which is in excellent working condition, was built in 1905 and used for rural mail deliveries. Other postal artifacts include old uniforms, railroad mail sacks, assorted mail boxes, and a 1931 Model T mail truck. Call for appointment
