On Aug. 18, 1962, Bowling Green’s post office announced in the Daily News that it was moving two and a half blocks from its current location at Main and Center streets to a brand new building on 11th Street within the week.

The new location boasted 12 customer parking spaces on the College Street side and 30 parking spots for postal employees and a dozen postal trucks on the Center Street side. “Blacktopping of the area is nearly completed,” the announcement noted.
