Come to find out from a visitor to my blog that this building was once the D.L Morris Garage & Station that was built on the site of the old Heatonville Post Office (1872-1881).

A year later, the town had about ten homes, a store and a blacksmith shop. It was the post office center of the area until 1881, at which time it sported about 50 people. However, that same year, the post office was discontinued as there was no one to act as postmaster. It would be another seven years before it would reopen.
