Quirkiest Post Offices: Ochopee

Ochopee Post Office, Ochopee, FL

At seven by eight feet, this post office is the smallest in America. Located on the edge of the Everglades, the building used to be an irrigation pipe shed until it was enlisted in the 1950s. Today, just one person, Shannon Mitchell, helms the desk, which is really all that fits inside. Ochopee’s population was 11 at last count, but the mailperson delivers daily to three counties. 38000 Tamiami Trail E.; (239) 695-2099
