America's Quirkiest Post Offices

Point Roberts Post Office, Point Roberts, WA

On a peninsula south of Vancouver, this U.S. post office is accessible by boat, small plane, or by driving through British Columbia. Dating back to at least 1898, the building was once serviced by steamship; these days, trucks are the more common mode of delivery. Employees speculate that it sees the highest volume of any post office in northwest Washington because some Vancouver residents, frustrated with trying to get items shipped into Canada, establish P.O. boxes in Point Roberts instead. 1582 Gulf Rd.; (360) 945-7770; uspspostoffices.com
