Chillicothe’s first post office opened in the spring of 1799. This surely must have caused much excitement. Local citizens no longer had to rely on travelers passing through town to bring word from back home or a copy of a newspaper which was often several months old.

Did you know that you own millions of acres of national parks, historic structures, cultural artifacts, ancient forests, snow-capped mountains, and clear blue lakes? Our public lands and waters belong to all Americans and are waiting for you to explore them!
To help engage and create our next generation of park visitors, supporters and advocates, we are kicking off the Every Kid in a Park initiative. The immediate goal is to provide an opportunity for each and every 4th grade student across the country to experience their public lands and waters in person throughout the 2015-2016 school year.
Soon, you will have access to your own Every Kid in a Park pass. This pass will give you free access to national parks, national forests, national wildlife refuges, and more!
The Every Kid in a Park pass will be available for the 2015-2016 school year.
