The post office in the tiny eastern Iowa town of Langworthy will cancel its last stamp tomorrow after 144 years of service. The Langworthy post office was established in the Jones County town in January of 1858. It was relocated to the home of Bob and Janice Goodyear in 1971, and they have operated the office since then. The Goodyear’s recently announced they’re moving, bringing an end to the post office. The town will be able to keep its zip code. There are 20 post office boxholders, and they’ll have to put up boxes outside their homes and use their 9-11 addresses to continue getting mail.
