A couple from Ohio turned a 170-year-old post office into a cozy bed & breakfast.
Joe Keough and his wife, Dorrie from Parkman, Ohio, are now proud owners of a small brick building which was once used as a post office for around 170 years.
“This is a very difficult topic for me for a number of reasons,. As the landlord of the post office building, it’s gotten to the point that we can no longer lease that building to the post office department” Dorrie Keough said.
Keough decided to build back the 170-year-old post office.
“This was always a gathering spot for the people that lived in Parkman and the surrounding communities,” Keough told WKYC.
“After the demolition, I was thinking ‘what have I gotten myself into?’ It was pretty much every day Dorrie and I were over here doing something, whether it was framing the windows or painting, putting the floor in or the ceiling.”
“When we tore the floor up, under the floor joists, we found a jawbone of a cow! Who knows how it got there?”
Finally, they managed to turn it into a cozy bed and breakfast which is known as the Old Postal Cottage.
“It was completely renovated, and it is now a tiny house, located within an Amish community in Northeast Ohio.”
“It has a private entrance, and is a cozy space, perfect for a getaway in the country, with access to all major roads and an easy commute to Cleveland, Youngstown, Akron, and many tourist attractions.
“We have the personal satisfaction of one, saving a historic building. Two, provide something that people enjoy and that brings us a lot of joy” Keough said.
