Yosemite Valley, CA– The historic Yosemite Village Post Office, completed in 1925, is receiving new wood shingle siding as part of the park’s efforts to maintain and restore historic buildings.
Yosemite National Park crews are currently installing sugar pine shingle siding along the upper level of the building. Once the siding is installed, the crews will paint the shingles dark brown to match the other historic buildings at Yosemite Village.
“We are excited about the renovations to the building,” said Bill Carroll, Yosemite National Park’s Postmaster. “A lot of the visitors to the park do mail postcards and do come by the post office. It’s one of the first buildings they see when they walk up from the Visitors center parking lot. I expect it will make a very good impression on people that are visiting the park.”
The Yosemite Village Post Office is open year-round and is where park employees receive their mail each day in post office boxes. It also is a popular destination for park visitors to mail postcards and letters with the Yosemite National Park postmark.
The Yosemite Post Office renovation was funded by the National Park Service.
