Scrapbook and other records documenting the history of the Morgantown post office. Includes news clippings, photographs, pamphlets, and papers.

Many pictures and articles document the construction of the previous post office, now the Morgantown Arts Center, as well as the present post office. There are also clippings about natives of Morgantown serving in the military in World War II.
