The Ochopee Post Office in Ochopee, Florida is the smallest post office in the United States. The little post office that could was once just a humble storage shed on U.S. Route 41. Prior to its life in the service of the United States, the tiny building was used as a storage facility for irrigation pipes and tools for a nearby tomato farm. When the old post office was destroyed in a fire, the little building stepped up and fulfilled its dream by becoming a working post office and serving the surrounding communities. As well as actually sorting mail and issuing stamps, the Ochopee Post Office is a somewhat popular roadside attraction and photo opportunity.
