Kimmswick, historic charm on the Mississippi River since 1859

City of Kimmswick,

The Kimmswick Post Office Restoration Project
 
The Historic City of Kimmswick has a charming little Post Office and it is one of Kimmswick's most beloved places. A United States Post Office has been in continuous operation in the City of Kimmswick since 1858, making it one of the longest standing United States Postal Service operations in Missouri.
 
The Kimmswick Post Office is open from 9:00am to 12:00pm Monday through Saturday. It is by far the city's top meeting place because most residents and shop owners must go to the Post Office to pick up their mail and that is where the news of the day is exchanged and when decades old relationships are kindled. A walk to the Post Office is on the daily to-do-list of many of the city's 150 residents and shop keepers.
 
The current Post Office building, located at 6057 Front Street, Kimmswick, Missouri, 63053, is about 100 years old and has the look and feel of a small town post office you would expect to see in a Norman Rockwell painting. The building was donated to the city by Lucianna Gladney-Ross in December 2010.
 
The building needs lots of work and the goal of the City of Kimmswick is to maintain that Norman Rockwell look and feel once the renovation is completed. It is going to be a long and hard project for which we are appealing to your hearts for support. Please come and see this wonderful little Post Office and please help preserve it by donating today. For more information contact the Kimmswick City Hall.

Commemorative Postal Cancelation Stamp

The graphic below was featured in a United States Postal Service commemorative postal cancelation stamp that was available on June 4, 2011, the first day of the Kimmswick Strawberry Festival. The cancelation was available exclusively at the Kimmswick Post Office. The actual cancelation stamp measured about two by four inches.

 

Upon request the Kimmswick Post Office staff canceled the postage on letters or packages using the commemorative postal cancelation stamp.

 

This commemorative postal cancelation is commemorating the donation of the Kimmswick Post Office building to the City of Kimmswick in December, 2010 by Lucianna Gladney-Ross. The commemorative postal cancelation was designed by Eva Tucker of Arnold, Missouri (www.humandmt.com).

Commemorative Postcards

The commemorative postcards for 2011 were designed by Eva Tucker and Delainey Maughs of Arnold, Missouri and printing was paid for by the City of Kimmswick. The postcards are being sold at the Anheuser Estate and Museum, community Post Office, Visitor Center, City Hall, and by many merchants throughout the City.
