Post Office 50444 (Hanlontown, Iowa)

Postal service in the Worth County town of Hanlontown dates to 1899, when a post office was established in a local general store. It’s moved several times in its 110-year history, sharing space with a barber shop in the 1920s and moving to a brick building adjacent to its current space in 1952. The current facility was built in 1960 to lease to the Post Office as part of the U.S. Postal Service’s leasing program. The building is still in use today. Though the future of the Hanlontown office was uncertain, earlier this month the Postal Service announced the location would not be closed.
