time a third class office. For nearly
two years it has been back in the
The present building in which the
postoffice is located, owned by W. T.
Shahnonhouse, of Norfolk, Va., has
served as a postoffice ...for twenty
years. Prior to removal into" this
building it had been located in the
northern end of the Hertford Banking
Company's Building; and prior to the
time it occupied those quarters it was
housed in the old Eagle Hotel Build
ing, occupying a room on the exact
spot where the Shannonhouse Build
ing now stands, the present postoffice.
Older residents recall that once the
postoffice was located in a small
frame building near the railroad sta
tion. Removal into the Carolina Bank
Building will be a great improvement
over any quarters formerly occupied.
