Golf, IL 60029
January 5, 2012
As I was looking for the Glenview, IL post office I discovered this one. What I find interesting is that I’ve been around this area for a number of years and just now discovered this village existed.
Perfect, I said to myself as I quickly took a few pictures. I was on my way to work and wanted to get a few pictures before my shift. This post office is attached to another Golf community building. It appears like they are older buildings which I find interesting.
The dedication plaque at the Golf Post Office is dated 1959. Dwight D. Eisenhower was president of the United States, Arthur E Summerfiled was postmaster general. This is the first post office I’ve come across that list Deputy postmaster general and assistant postmaster general. Here is what’s listed on the plaque.
Deputy postmaster general, Edson O. Sessions, Assistant postmaster generals, John McKibbin, E. George Siedle, Hyde Gillette, Rollin D. Bernard and Eugene J. Lyons.
