Post Office &
Dry Goods Shop
LOCATION: Main Street
A US Post Office had already been established in Commerce (Venus before that) when the Latter-day Saints began settling in the area. It became the Nauvoo Post Office on April 21, 1840, with George W. Robinson as postmaster. He was followed in January 1845 by Elias Smith, who had been managing the print shop. The Nauvoo post office was very busy, as steamships and mail carriers picked up and dropped off mail several times a week.
