Montreat Post Office
This building was once part of the Montreat College, built in 1900 and used as a library. Today we know it as the community center and Post Office for the tiny town. I love the wood work around the windows and the detailed wood exterior of the building.
This last photo is what the building looked like initially - notice the absence of trees! This area was heavily logged as was most of the mountains - all the forest now is new growth. Very few old growth trees remain.
We are playing Ruby Tuesday and Rednesday so be sure to stop by our hosts.
I have a new blog/online shop to help raise money for my rescued feral cats so please stop by Wildcat Woods Vintage Treasures often! The link is also in the sidebar.
