Imnaha Post Office on list for possible closure — 1 Comment

  1. I’m glad to find your website and see this update on the post office. I am a descendent of A.B. Findley and the Crawfords and Dunlaps from that area. My granddad, William Philemon Dunlap was born in Imnaha. South of the town center is a creek named Dunlap Creek, named after my Dad’s side of the family. It just so happens that I will be leaving for Jackson Wyoming tomorrow (I live in Alaska) and plan on driving through from there to Imnaha in a roundabout way as we travel to Coulee Dam where my folks live. It’s been almost thirty years since I’ve been to Imnaha so am excited to see it again. I’ll take lots of pictures of the post office while I’m there.
