Montgomery who bought the water rights where the first attempt was made to build a mill on the Kewaunee River; and T. Hublan who also bought land in the Footbridge area near the river. The last column of the table was not reproduced as it contained mostly miscellaneous notes and no common data for comparisons. It is dated August 18, , however, here are no government postal markings.
Written by Morgan L. He addressed the cover simply to J. Hathaway Jr. Most likely Hathaway was on a surveying trip and Martin had a general idea where he would be working. At the time such a letter could be handed to a ship captain or an overland traveler and passed on at any trading post. It is a testimonial to the success in using such an address. One cannot resist the temptation to think into the future and speculate what Zip Code would have been appropriate for this letter.
Swaty building 9. Decker building Melchior building Record building Meunier store Slaby building Triangle lot Abraham Hall purchased a mill site from the U. As more settlers arrived and more land was purchased, business quickly took root on both sides of the Wolf. Small settlements developed both near the mouth of the river and around the mill about a mile west. The village was called Ahnepee from September 4, until when the spelling was changed to Ahnapee and finally, on October 9, , to Algoma. Prior to , mail was delivered informally to the Wolf River settlement.
In the initial years of government postal service, a post office was often located in the building in which the postmaster lived or in his business address, such as a general store, hotel, cheese factory of saloon. In the nearly years of its existence, the location of Algoma post office changed frequently, usually when a new postmaster was appointed.
All locations are identified on the plat map on the preceding page. Located in the building above, the post office was on the north side of the river overlooking the harbor. Over the years the building has been extensively remodeled as a residence at East North Water Street. Mail was brought in one day a week - Tuesday - by horse and wagon from Green Bay. At that time the closest railroad was at Appleton. On July 4, the Kewaunee Enterprise published an article reporting that the House of Representatives had passed a bill creating new post roads in Wisconsin.
The paper felt that Ahnepee would greatly benefit as the village would be provided with two mails per week rather than one. It states the nearest post office was Rushford, 14 miles in a westerly direction and that Casco was the nearest office off the route, 11 miles to the southwest. The statement concerning the location of the Rushford post office is puzzling as Rushford was in the Town of Pierce. Another site document filed on November 4, lists the same location for Ahnepee, but it lists Casco as the nearest post office at 12 miles to the southwest.
Both Ahnapee and Ahnepee are used in this document. T S'oaJ oooi or.. Leaves every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 6! Leaves via Forestville on Thursday at 10 14 A. Sundays from 12 P. Boffo, Caroline Gessner, E. Newcomb, W. H Schlichting, Mrs. Mail came to Ahnapee via a contracted carrier.
White was one awarded such a contract in DeWayne Stebbins was appointed postmaster on May 22, In , the post office was moved the Knipfer building, above, on the northeast corner of 4 th and Steele. The third move was in to the Danek building on the east side of 3 rd Street between Clark and Steele. Then, in , the post office was moved to the Decker building on the north side of Steele between 2 nd and 3 rd Streets, now Steele Street, the middle section of the building on the following page.
In , Kwapil moved the post office to the Swaty building on the north side of Steele Street between 1 sl and 2 nd in the V formed by Steele and Navarino at Steele. Postmaster Kwapil oversaw mail boxes, which rented for 15 cents per quarter. DeWayne Stebbins was reappointed postmaster on January 1, He immediately decided to move the post office back to the Decker bank building, a move prompting the Record to report the next day that, 'The work of fixing up the new quarters for the post office in the bank building has been in progress for two or three days, and D.
Stebbins took formal possession of the office yesterday. Mails will be received and distributed at the new office probably today. It was joined to the Kohlbeck building on the left in and was part of that facility for nearly years. It is described as being 0.
When Mathias Melchior became postmaster on November 1, , the office remained in the Decker building. The entrance on 3 rd is marked with white arrows. It led also to the section of the basement used by the post office. The entrance to the post office is now on Third Street, one door south of Steele. The new location is light, commodious, pleasant and convenient to the business portion of the city. He also placed a new street lamp at the entrance to the post office at the southeast corner of the building. Earl Hanson and G. Gagnon are two of a number of mail clerks inscribing their names on the frame.

This time, in , it was to the Record building, located on the north side of Steele Street, between 2 nd and 3 rd , today Steele, just one door east of its earlier location in the Decker bank building.
Again it became a Third Class post office, and again moved in That time it relocated to the Slaby building at what is now Steele Street. Algoma had its first new post office building with the construction on Block 5, the triangular block bordered by Navarino, State and 3 rd Streets in Algoma post office is currently located at Flora Avenue.
Lura J. It is a growing city, lighted by electricity and has several large manufacturing establishments. Among them we may name a furniture factory, veneer works, a foundry and machine shop, a planning mill, also a bank, grain warehouse, a weekly paper, three hotels and a graded public school, a high school with a four year course and several churches.
The US. Before that the postmaster had to pay for any clerk hire. No one can be found who will accept some of the routes for the price offered, and the old carriers being kept on and have to be paid good wages since their time expired. Tipler who carries the mail between here and Sturgeon Bay being one of the lucky ones; he says in this way he may be able to get back some of the money that he lost on the route while bound to his contract.
William White was postmaster when Rural Free Delivery was inaugurated. Late in four rural carrier routes out of Algoma were authorized, two in November and two more in December. Elliot and Fred Fellows have been appointed as carriers on two rural routes that are to be put in operation out of this city next month. Fred Fellows being sick at the present time, W. Fellows has been sworn in as his deputy and will have charge of the route until Fred is on deck again.
FRANK'S COMPULSIVE GUIDE TO POSTAL ADDRESSES
The prospects are that we will have more routes in operation before a great while as they have proved very satisfactory every place they have been tried. In his 20 years, Fellows purchased seven horses, one cart, two mail wagons, two sleighs and, since , a two-cylinder Maxwell and three new and three used Fords. Fellows traveled about , of his , miles by car, using about 15, gallons of gasoline, 25 barrels of oil and 35 sets of tires. During those 20 years Fellows had two run-away horses and five auto accidents. Fellows told about his most harrowing experience during the spring of when he had to ford the south branch of the Wolf, now Ahnapee, River.
Ice was running and the horse slipped on a large submerged piece. Fellows jumped into the icy water to free the horse and lead it to safety. By then the rig and mail were drifting downstream. Ice was forming on Fellows and his horse thus forcing him to go to a neighboring farm. His right foot, hand, ear and the side of his face were frozen. Early bridges were built of cedar timbers that often floated away from stringers during periods of high water, making it necessary for mail carriers and others to replace and wedge them with a rock before rushing over.
Sometimes that did not work and travelers such as Fellows were forced to ford. When Fellows route was opened, he had a handful of letters per day and two or three daily papers. Fellows spoke of the wonderful improvements to roads during his tenure. An exception was the county line road through the Black Ash swamp. After waiting so long for improvements that never came, the government changed the route to avoid the road.
Fellows told of other improvements and said that if Henry Ford kept building Model Ts, he would make it to retirement. Fellows began working from another facility when in the post office was moved to the Meunier building on the northeast corner of 3 rd and Steele Streets. Government records reflecting Joseph Henquinet's appointment postmaster in are confusing. Henquinet has already furnished his bonds which have been forwarded to Washington to be inspected but as yet has not been notified just when to take charge of the office. Henquinet never did take office, although government documents state he was postmaster from September 18, until March 16, When Clerk Earl Hanson released his research into the history of the Algoma post office in the October 4, Algoma Record Herald, he included the following paragraph from the September 18, edition of the paper.
Actually it is known that Mr. The present office on the corner of Third and Steele Streets has been in service for some time past, and although it answers the purpose, it has not the facilities which a city of this size demands, and it is for this reason that officials have decided upon a change. The building owned by F. Slaby for the new office. In an interview with postmaster William White, we learned that it is the intention of the officials to have the new office screened as is the case in larger offices, so that the building can be left open on all holidays, making it possible for those who rent lock boxes to receive their mail at any time.
The new office will have combination lock boxes of the latest pattern, and call boxes. The furnishings will be new and modern. It is expected that the new office will be ready for commission by the first of September. Algoma is today in possession of the finest post office of any town of its size in the state of Wisconsin. Several months ago it was decided that this city should have a new office, and Frank Slaby was contracted with to equip and lease to the government, his building on Steele Street formerly used by him as a sample room.
The building for the new office was given a thorough overhauling, plastered, painted and new windows installed. The furniture which included call boxes, desks, frames and windows, was ordered of the Post Office Equipment Company of Chicago and arrived Monday of this week. It is up-to- date in every respect and met with approval of all concerned. The work of installing the outfit and putting things in condition was immediately commenced, and it is expected that the office will be moved into its new quarters by the end of the week. Postmaster White informs us that there are to be four hundred boxes, two hundred of which are to be of the lock pattern, and the remainder call.
The lock boxes are of the latest and instead of being locked with keys are equipped with combinations. The building which has been used in the past by the post office is the property of the Bank of Algoma, and will be used for other purposes in the future. Algoma people can well feel proud of their new post office. He served until November 1 when Jerry Jerabek was appointed acting postmaster. Businesses were not required to have receptacles. Groessl was appointed postmaster on May 19, He took office on July 16, and was re-appointed on July 12, without term after having passed a special Civil Service examination.
Appointments up to this time had been for a four year term with optional re-appointment privileges by the President with Senate confirmation. Earl Hanson was appointed substitute mail clerk on November 8, , regular clerk on November 1, , and assistant postmaster on January 1, To obtain accurate dates, he checked and rechecked information from various sources, getting his final facts from a variety of places, such as Washington D.
House numbering is virtually completed and it will now be the duty of the householders to place the numbers upon their houses and provide mailboxes or approved slots in the doors as the last step before delivery service can be started. Present plans call for two deliveries a day. Under government regulations mail carriers do not deliver to homes without sidewalks. Groessl, Algoma Postmaster, and it brought tentative authorization for the inauguration of city mail delivery by June 1, but the date hinged on whether or not the local office would be ready at that time.
Everything had been in readiness here to earn authorization weeks ago, Groessl said, but indicated that much also remains to be accomplished now that actual authorization has been received for mail delivery. Big worry is whether or not equipment such as nine street mail boxes and two carrier storage boxes will be received in time for the authorization date.
The defense rush may affect delivery, it is feared. Carrier desk and other equipment also must be received although part of it is already here. The post office interior will be completely revamped and there will be no window service for mail. The lobby will be reduced so that the section in the southwest corner will be eliminated.
A parcel post delivery system will also be organized. Postmaster Quiren Groessl obtained the support of businesses and circulated petitions "requesting that Algoma be given a preferred place on the list of places to receive a new Federal Post Office. Felhofer John L. Zuroske, Officer-in-Charge Judith M. Calmes, Officer-in-Charge. John L. Weidner and Borcherdt were little known businesses.
The faint fancy cogged double line double circle postmark is accompanied by a faint Maltese cross cancel. Postmarked Ahnepee, the cover with the Borcherdt return address is a gold envelope with a blue one-cent stamp and a magenta two-cent stamp. It is an unusually colorful cover. Citizens Bank appears in this special postmark. A rectangular Algoma cancel is partially visible on the notice of the bank's notices of souvenirs.
A faint Maltese cross cancels the stamp. A walk along Crescent Beach reveals little change since this picture postcard was sent in It is likely that the early settlers and surveyors such as Hathaway and Sibley before them saw much the same thing. North Water Street. This was an unofficial site. Swaty building. Block 5, the triangle lot bounded by State, Navarino and 3 rd Streets. Much of it comes from contradictory newspaper articles. It reports that the office was discontinued on February 2, before being reestablished on February 28, with Charles Fellows as postmaster.
Bulletin 23 indicates Fellows moved the office to Door County on April 10, where it was discontinued on November 15, when its papers were sent to Algoma. Foscoro was described in by Wisconsin State Gazetteer as being a village on Stony Creek in Kewaunee County, 18 miles north of Kewaunee, and 6 miles northeast of Ahnapee, which was the nearest banking and shipping point. An Ahnapee Record article noted as from indicates that Captain Charles Lewis Fellows established a telegraph and post office with the name Foscoro and served as postmaster for 23 years until the office was discontinued.
Another undated article reports that Fellows had a store at Clay Banks in Door County and also owned the pier, post and telegraph offices there. He did not serve as Clay Banks postmaster. It was suggested that many more people would be served by a post office one mile south and a mile and a half west of Foscoro. A December 7, issue of the same paper noted that the Foscoro post office would be closed at the end of the month.
Most of the people who patronized the Foscoro office would be serviced at Carnot, in Door County, the next nearest post office. Other businesses such as the sawmill, above, boarding house, warehouse and most log residences were in Ahnapee Kewaunee County , just south of Stony Creek. Roads did not appear passable in early March and Fellows needed butter. Wenzel Ullsperger who served as Kodan's only postmaster in its eleven years of operation conducted the post office in his store. The building at the northeast corner was the cheese factory while the building behind it to the north was the Kodan store and post office.
As the current photo indicates, these buildings remain standing. A number of pictures from the files of Algoma Record Herald and historical records of Kewaunee County Historical Society, from the turn of and continuing over the next years, show the store and post office at different points in time. According to the February 14, Ahnapee Record , "An effort is being made to have a post office established at Wenzel Ullsperger's store and cheese factory five miles northwest of this city in what is commonly known as the Blahnek district.
The inhabitants of that locality have undoubtedly a valid claim for an office as it is in a populous neighborhood and three miles removed from any other post office. Wenzel Ullsperger is the postmaster, and the office was named after the town in Germany in which that gentleman was born. The first mail for this new office was sent out from here by the Red River route, last Tuesday, the new office being on that route.
Ullsperger, who was born at Kodau, Bohemia, wished to have his post office named after his birthplace and so requested this of the U. Post Office Department, but when Mr. Ullsperger got his office name stamp, it was spelled Kodan instead of Kodau. It is claimed Mr. Perhaps in our language of today, Kodan sounds better than Kodau. Adding to the confusion is the script of the era.
Population to be supplied was estimated at on the report verified by Kewaunee Postmaster John Rooney. Information was essentially the same as on the map, thus the reason for the second site report is not clear.
The Topographer's Office plainly used the name Kodan. It is difficult to explain the name change by the Post Office Department. During its years of service, the Rankin post office filed four site documents. The new office has been named Rankin, in honor of the late Jos. It was rejected without explanation. Population to be supplied was estimated at about It is also noted that this location would be 3,' on the south side of the new Ahnapee and Western Railroad tracks.
At that point, the post office was supplied at the Ahnapee and Western Railroad station, a distance of one mile. Rankin's fourth and final site document was processed on November 7, just prior to the appointment of Peter Entringer as postmaster. Route was 14 mile from Railroad Station 0 to the Rankin post office.
Mail was carried three times per week. He was employed by the contractor Gardner Coweles, Algoma, Iowa. As early as February 28, , the Algoma Record was lamenting the poor postal service at Rankin when it pointed out that there were great opportunities to better the service. While Rankin was only six miles from Algoma, mail sent to Algoma from Rankin went to Green Bay and then back to Algoma, a distance of sixty miles which took a couple of days.
The paper noted that the people of Rankin should make a vigorous protest against such service. On October 24 the paper announced that Rankin would have daily mail service beginning the following June Apparently the lobbying worked. The farmers through the vicinity are rejoicing over the good news. Merchant-cheesemaker Fred Plinke was engaged in the typical businesses for crossroad communities of the era. When Fred Plinke submitted his map, he included building locations. It was established March 13, and was discontinued on November 15, when its papers were sent to Algoma.
As the site document indicates, Woodside was named with the opening of the post office. It is a name that has remained for the area for over years. Woodside post office was 3 miles from Foscoro and 4 miles from Ahnapee. Motivation for its opening was that residents near Silver Creek had been using Foscoro service which became less convenient when Postmaster Charles Fellows moved the Foscoro post office from the south side of Stony Creek to the north side on April 10, Although the move was only a distance of a few hundred yards, the Foscoro post office moved across the county line into Door County.
As the Stony Creek sawmill became less active over the years, fewer people were in the Foscoro community and the families at Woodside preferred to have their own post office.

The propeeod office to bo soiled Select a short name for the proposed office, which, when written, will not resemble the name of any other post office In the State. A short time later Captain Shaw bought the Silver Creek farmland that has been in the Shaw family ever since. During the early years, Shaw carried the first mail between Ahnapee and Two Rivers. Moses Shaw was one of Zebina Shaw's sons and during his years as Woodside postmaster, the post office was in the Shaw home.
Mail at the time was delivered to different localities via stage coach. The site documenttells us the Woodside post office was on Route from Algoma to Sturgeon Bay where mail was carried three times per week. Carnot was the nearest post office not on the route. Population to be supplied by the proposed office was - While the document is dated October , the postmaster appointment was not recorded until March , about six months later.
The south side of the home at County Trunk S served as the post office. Mail sent from or to the Woodside Post Office has not been examined. Shaw is the grandson of early settler to the area known as Woodside, Capt. Zeb Shaw. His map appears to be in error as he places Foscoro in Door County. Years earlier the actual county line was uncertain. Its main intersection is on the section line bisecting Sections 31 and Perkins as postmaster.
Elisha Dean was the postmaster when the name was changed to Carlton on March 10, Carlton post office was discontinued on July 31, when its papers were sent to Kewaunee. Carlton was 5 miles south of Kewaunee, the county seat and banking location, and 20 miles north of Two Rivers, the nearest railroad station.
Wood products were brought in from the surrounding area and shipped from the old pier. Most Carlton postmasters were associated with the store or pier. John J. Borland established the store as early as It appears that the post office then operated at the pier or on property belonging to Mr. Perkins, which was close to the pier. NIX j ia. The card was returned to Warren Mills, in Monroe County, as required. Note the Carlton receipt date stamp. Kubale was one of many who sent a card such as the one at right to note the change in his address effective December 1, Norman N orman post office was established March 27, with John Schultz appointed postmaster a few weeks later on April An article appearing in the New Era on November 24, reported that the post office received its mail from Kewaunee.
It was discontinued on November 30, with the advent of Rural Free Delivery when mail service came from Kewaunee. Norman II was a special office meaning the postmaster would carry the mail at no expense to the government. The people who receive their mail matter at the new office in Carlton are nearly all immigrants from the city of Klatovy, in Bohemia, and they united in a petition to the department to name the office Klatovy. Pelnar was operating a public house about one-mile east of Norman in the SE! At the time of the paper's publication, an effort was being made to have the post office removed again.
John Dishmaker was the new applicant for the postmastership. It is possible that there was a relocation effort at the time. Reporting on Norman in September , the New Era said that Thomas Sefcik who kept a dance hall, public house and post office there was said to be very popular and the life of the place. As 'fys sib. Below is a cover mailed on January 26, from the second Norman post office. Wisconsin State Gazetteer, , describes Sandy Bay as a post village in Kewaunee County, 8 miles south of Kewaunee, the county seat, and 15 miles north of Two Rivers, the nearest railroad station.
Kewaunee was the nearest banking point and stages traveled daily between Two Rivers and Ahnapee. Sandy Bay 1, the first post office with the name, opened in so the return to the name Sandy Bay was not surprising since the Lake Michigan shoreline from Two Creeks in Manitowoc County to Kewaunee remained essentially unchanged since the last ice age. As usual this consists not simply of red till, but often of laminated clays and beds of sand, which occur both at the surface and at various horizons in the red clay formation.
The stream terraces which mark every large ravine have their isial value here, in strongly suggesting that old high-level stages of the lake existed in this region, although the old shorelines themselves have been consumed by Lake Michigan. A better description for this post office location would have been the SE 14 of the NW 14 of Section Mail came three times each week on Route , the route from Two Rivers to Kewaunee.
Nero, in Manitowoc County, was the nearest post office on the same route, a little over 3 miles to the south. When Sandy Bay II was proposed, the population to be supplied was stated to be between and It is interesting to note that the population was reported to be 90 just after the turn of the 20 th century. A September Kewaunee New Era article reported on Sandy Bay, once a promising burgh but being somewhat neglected at the time of the article. The paper went on to say that the pier had rotted away, few boats entered the harbor, and the store, saloon and hall were deserted, however Gust Clemm was still operating his small cheese factory and John Waegli was still the postmaster.
The closure came only six weeks after that of the Carlton post office. Above is an early 20 lh century postcard picture showing the location of the pier and Bon Creek. The post office was at the top of the bank on the left, or north, side of the creek. An adjacent photograph is a picture of the same area. Structures no longer exist. Examples of mail sent from Sandy Bay II appear below. The manuscript cancel and postmark information in a dark magenta ink give the mailing date as February 16, The second cover, with a CDS.
More examples of covers and postcards were found for this post office than for any other office terminated November 30, or earlier. The latest date for an example of a manuscript cancel is May while the earliest date for an example of the CDS is June August , on the backstamps at right, indicates the piece of mail was received at Sandy Bay, Rowleys Bay and, lastly, Sheboygan. Miss Helen Warner was the recipient of this postcard from Sandy Bay. John McClintock tells us such government postcards were imprinted with a one cent stamp. Its post office was always on the Manitowoc side of the road.
Tisch Mills, today and historically, is a significant part of Kewaunee County and is worthy of discussion. Tisch Mills post office opened in George Pribyl discusses early mail in the southern end of Kewaunee County. She wrote that clipper ships brought mail from Milwaukee to Two Creeks, to a post office known as Nero. Mail was held for a weekly horseback ride by Mr. Parma who took the mail to the County Line House for pickup. In the post office was transferred to F. Stangel's store, above. Stangel was postmaster, a position he held for 40 years before being succeeded by Anton Olson.
We are informed that it was an error and that the name of the office is Pilsen. The post office was first named Carlton Mills. Then some of the folks around there thought they would rather have it called Staus, so they wrote to the postmaster General and he called it Staus. Then some other folks thought it would be nice to have it called Pilsner, and the Department was duly petitioned to call it Pilsner.
Then Mr. Key Postmaster General David McKendree Key got mad and wrote back that he thought there was too much fooling going on about naming the post office from which it was not likely they would ever be able to collect an assessment for campaign purposes. Besides that, it would be more than his situation would be worth to call it Pilsner. Staus was bad enough, but Pilsner was worse.

Rutherford, he explained, got tight once on some Pilsner beer which he got from a Bohemian friend of his at Fremont who had obtained from the old country, and went home, kicked over the cook stove, hugged the hired girl, and stood on his head on the front stoop. On that account Mrs. Hayes resolutely refuses to permit any other beverage than water to be used at state dinners at the White House, and the mere mention of Pilsner as the name of the new post office threw her into hysterics. A Cabinet meeting was called, and it was determined to discard both Staus and Pilsner and adopt the original name, Carlton Mills, and the President instructed the P.
General to write that if anything more was said about it he would change the name of the Postmaster, Joseph Stangel, to John Jones, or maybe remove him and appoint somebody from Ohio, if he can find anybody down that way to whom he has not already given a government office. So it is settled that the new post office is to be henceforth known as Carlton Mills.
