Reader raises question about Post Office location

Shy Reader (Please do not use my name) writes
Ed, was this corner building (Photo) once the location of the Columbia post office as the article/photo states? I clearly remember the location of the old post office in the corner next to the Miller Hotel, now where Adair Co. Courthouse Annex stands. The P.O. moved from there to its newer location on Burkesville ST before it more recently moved to its present further-out location on Burkesville ST. Don't know why, but I just wondered if you remembered farther back than I do? -Shy Reader
Thanks, Shy Reader. Actually, I'm a little confused. I always remember being told it was, but I'll need still more clarification from "Jim," or Mike Watson or another bona fide Adair County historian to know for sure. -EW
