I remember this P.O. from my early years; I walked past it to Adams Run Elementary School.

My aunt, Ruth Darrah Finch, was Post Mistress here for close to twenty fives…everyone knew her!

Penny, doing research on McLeod Plantation on James Island and have evidence to support that your great-great grandfather Dr. C. H. Brownley was a surgeon and later the agent assigned to McLeod Plantation on James Island by the Freedmen’s Bureau. Would love to compare notes with you.

I have discovered documents showing my great-grandfather Dr. C.H. Brownley at some point used this for his office. It was also the post office for Adams Run I believe, after the Civil War. It was also used for a polling location for the first election during the reconstruction. Has this always been this building’s location or was there a possible relocation? I would appreciate any information. He married Annie Margaret Mikell
