Snapshot of old Heidrick Post Office - 1920

From the Knox Historical Museum photo archives:  Heidrick Post Office, established 3-4-1920. Ben Herndon was the postmaster.

Post office was located just off KY 11 on what is currently called Patterson Street. Today's Highland Park Baptist Church is located just across Patterson Street from where the old post office was located.
