A new post office facility was installed in Crab Orchard last week. The new facility was constructed by the Tuff Shed Company and is located on the south side of Crab Orchard’s main street. The United States Postal Service leased the property from the Village of Crab Orchard.

The dimensions of the facility are 40 feet long and 12 feet wide. The building weighs an estimated 23,000 pounds. Ron Oates who will continue to serve as Postmaster in Relief said the interior of the post office is real nice and includes a lobby area, office area and small back room. It even has a restroom featuring an electrical composting toilet.
