The Put-in-Bay Post Office is the island’s lifeline to the mainland and a central meeting spot for locals. Everyone on the island has a post office box instead of a mailbox at home. The population is so tiny, this just makes sense. So locals often plan to meet up with friends at the same time to chat and share some island gossip.

The Post Office is located on one of the busiest roads in town. Langram Road is a heavily trafficked thoroughfare that connects Lighthouse Point and the Lime Kiln Dock to the downtown. The Post Office sits in between the gas station and hardware store. Get all your errands down in one fell swoop.
The Shops at Compass Pointe are also right next door. Besides the hardware store, this lovely little complex includes the 421 Dock boutique as well as Home Post, an excellent home goods store.
