Historic post office in Old San Simeon Village, CA, to be relocated


The Tribune: Some changes are coming to a historic building in Old San Simeon Village, Calif., in mid-August.

Sebastian’s building, owned by the Hearst Corp. since 2009, will undergo a total renovation, resulting in the relocation of the Hearst Ranch Winery tasting room and the tiny town’s 140-year-old U.S. Postal Service branch.
