    Does it have to be a pic? I’ve got a video clip of the post office in a little tiny town in Tennessee that some of you may know.

    This has probably been posted several times already but here goes...

    “Members of the Luckenbach family and other German immigrants moved here from Fredericksburg in the 1850s. They settled along Grape Creek and soon established a school for their children. The Grape Creek Post Office was in operation briefly after 1858 with William Luckenbach as first Postmaster. Later settlers included August Engel, who served as first Postmaster when the Post Office was reestablished here in 1886 under the name of Luckenbach... August Engel served as postmaster for five years in Blanco County and for 32 years at Cranes Mill in Comal County. He was succeeded as postmaster by his son August Engel, Jr in 1904 who purchased 6 acres in 1895 in Gillespie County from Carl A. Luckenbach... A general merchandise store with a post office area, blacksmith shop, cotton gin, saloon, and warehouses were added to the property. A dancehall (Tanz Halle) also located there was a center for social gatherings... William Engel replaced his brother August Engel Jr. as postmaster in 1890. William’s son, Benno W. Engel Sr., was appointed postmaster in 1935 and served in that capacity for 36 years. The Luckenbach post office was discontinued in 1971 after 85 years of continuous service to Gillespie County and to the community."

    the bar area in the back... Adam is pointing to one the two bullet holes (the other is at the edge of that oval picture by his sleeve) fired by an angry resident back in the early 70s when he found out his wife was cheating on him...
