Kenton County Post Offices

www.nkyviews.com

Over time, there have been 49 differently named post offices in Kenton County, listed below.  Note the list gnores those PO's which are branches of Covington, i.e. Erlanger, Fort Mitchell.

The USPS has a web site here, that lists every postmaster in the history of some (not all), current (not closed ones)post offices. 

Like most Northern Kentucky counties, post office openings were plentiful in the nineteenth century, but automobiles and rural free delivery caused a rapid decline in their number in the earl 1900's.  There's a chart of the Kenton County PO's that are active, and when, here.
