A history of the Rose Hill
post office was published in
the February 11, 1937 issue
of THE DUPLIN TIMES. The
historical account was re
corded by the postmaster,
M.L.Carr.
The Rose Hill post office
was established November 8. ?
1872, with Alsa Southerland
as the flrst postmaster. Until
July 1, 1913, the office
operated as a fourth class
unit and the postmasters
during the first 40 years were
paid commissions based on
their stamp cancellations and
money order sales. The first
post office was housed in
Alsa Southerland's general
store in what was called the
Henderson building in Rose

at the postmaster's expense;
most were operated from the
postmaster's existing
business. The post office
moved to its 1937 locatipn on
Main Street, Nov. 4, 1926.
Postmaster Fussell re
ceived a salary of $1,000 per
year, and by 1937 the salary
had doubled due to the
increased volume of stamp
sales and postal collections.
A postal clerk was hired soon
after the office received
third-class status. The clerk
received a starting salary of
$168 annually and by 1937
the wages had increased to
about $1,000 a year. The
third-class office operated on
a beginning budget of $12 for
utilities and rent each year;
in 1937 the annual budget
had grown to almost $600 a
year.
The Rose Hill post office
was granted authority to
establish the first rural free
delivery in December of 1901
and S.L. Bradshaw was
hired. Bradshaw left the
office at 8:30 a.m. with a
horse and bueev and de
livered the mail; he returned
at 4:30 p.m. Fourteen years
later, April 8, 1915, Brad
shaw was permitted to use an
automobile on his mail route.
The first carrier was hired at
a salary of SSOO a year.
Fussell was followed by
postmasters S.L. Bradshaw
on December 31, 1918;
Henry G. Early, Jan. 1, 1920;
W.Herman Hale, Oct. 12,
1923; and M.L. Carr, June ^
