It was located at six different locations until it moved into the small building (shown above) on 5th Street in c1910. In July 1917, having quickly outgrown this building, the Post Office moved into spaces within the Park Building on 6th Street – and later yet to a new location on Lawrence Avenue. (c1913) Full Size

In the lead photograph of the Elwood City Post Office, circa 1910, the person in the lower left, holding a cigar in his left hand, is my great grandfather, James Edward Butler, who was the Postmaster at the time. I would love to know when and how he was appointed and his term of service.
