This Northern Michigan Post Office is Like a Tiny House Cut in Half
Okay we get it, some northern Michigan locations don't have much of a population. A little hamlet like Toivola can claim a post office if not much else, but its USPS outpost looks like little more than a tiny house cut in half.
Perhaps the design is helpful in the snow. With the steep roof slant and the green house next door to shelter the building, the snow isn't as big a problem as it could be.
The Toivola post office, 49965, is open just 4 hours weekdays from 9AM to 1PM. If you want to visit, it's located on M-26 in Houghton County.
Is it the smallest post office in Michigan? Not by a long shot. That honor belongs to a building that's a little more than a broom closet located in mid-Michigan Gratiot County. Elm Hall has the state's smallest post office.
