The 41 offices in Oregon that are on the potential chopping block, are in rural parts of the state. One office being considered is among five buildings in Fort Rock, Oregon. Fort Rock’s Postal Office was founded in 1908 and helped put the town on the map. The post office continues to be a location where locals post notices and send mail. Without this office, locals will drive over 30 miles to send a letter or receive a package.
