Lauretta Post Office

     Lauretta had a post office from 1897 to 1913 - it was last operated by Mrs. Catherina O'Brien and likely from her home.  Cummins 1928 Atlas shows the O'Briens living in the area of the school.
     Below is information from Post Offices and Postmasters - National Archives of Canada website giving the name of the three postmasters and the dates they operated Lauretta Post Office.
     If one might have doubted the existence of the post office, the postmark below can be found in the book, "2000 Postmarks of Prince Edward Island 1814 to 1995" by G. Douglas Murray, on page 117.
