How much fun it is to find the Hinsdale 200th Anniversary Pictorial Postmark.
Earlier this month in Hinsdale, New Hampshire the town celebrated having the Oldest Continuously Operating Post Office for 200 Years in the same building! This makes it the oldest Post Office in the United States to have these bragging rights. It is because of being in the same location all these years.
On August 04, 2016 the town of Hinsdale celebrated their 200th – Bicentennial Anniversary. The last time I saw words describing Bicentennial Anniversary was eons ago in 1976!
