Belleview MO post office closes over lease issue


The post office in Belleview, Missouri, in the Arcadia Valley, closed on December 30.  It was supposed to stay open as part of POStPlan for four hours a day, but the Postal Service says that the landlord wouldn't renew the lease.  There's probably more to it than that, but the news item is brief and the area is so rural the PO isn't even on Google Street Views.  Operations have been transfered to Ironton, which is over 22 miles away, a 35-minute drive.  The nearest post office to Belleview now is in Caledonia, almost 14 miles away.  Read more.
