Alabama originally became a territory on March 3, 1817. The state then joined the Union on December 14, 1819, making it the 22nd state of America's united states with its capital in Montgomery. The name Alabama arose from the Alabama River, which got its name from the Alabama people.
Nevertheless, the state has nicknames such as the heart of dixie and the Yellowhammer state. Alabama also has a vibrant motto, "Audemus jura nestra defendere," which means "We dare defend our rights." Alabama was an agricultural state, but currently, its economy spurged due to its transition to a diversified industrial economy. The state's flag consists of a white field with St. Andrew's crimson cross, saltire.
The state's postal code is Ala/ AL. The establishment of post offices in Alabama was initially in its large urban towns during the 1800s. The United States Postal Service expanded its operations through the rural free delivery to those inconvenienced by long travels to the city to pick up and send mail.
As claimed by the United States Postal Service, the Huntsville Post Office is Alabama's oldest post office. The Huntsville post office exhibits the remarkable Greek revival architectural style of a projecting temple form with engaged pilasters. Brick walls, entablature, and ornaments of a limestone water table accentuate the building.
Some Alabama post offices are currently listed on the National Register of Historic places as they possess eye-catching architectural styles. Such post offices include those in Albertville, Anniston, Old Athens, Attala, Auburn, Birmingham-The Robert S. Vance Federal Building and US Courthouse, and even Demopolis.
Currently, there are multiple post offices across Alabama, such as in Madison, Gadsden, Selma. All have different official hours but be sure of their services' accessibility by all between 9 AM-4;30 PM. However, rendering of postal services is unavailable during the weekends.
