Pictures of the Past

This photo, taken in October of 1988, shows the old Powhatan Post Office building, with the Powhatan Courthouse in background. The photo was taken about a month after Freda Richey, postmaster at the time, said they moved into the new building between the Methodist Church and the Schoolhouse (Male and Female Academy). (Pictures of the Past is a cooperative effort of The Times Dispatch and the Lawrence County Historical Society. Readers are encouraged to submit historic photos.)
