I heard Orrtanna is a lovely little town. One of these days I will have the pleasure of visiting.

In this day and age as the digital world takes over and the USPS struggles to stay afloat, even talking about cutting service on certain days of the week, this is a good opportunity to continue cost-cutting measures by closing under-performing and under-used post offices. While it's going to certainly be a slight inconvenience for a while, I'm sure the 68 post office box holders will eventually come to love their mailbox delivery to their doorstep. Plus - there's a very large, brand new post office in Fairfield, on the same road as Orrtanna, just 4 miles away.
As the USPS continues to look at post offices, they should now consider the Cashtown and Mcknightstown post offices and consolidate them. Heck - as far out of Gettysburg as its post office serves, Fairfield would certainly be able to handle Cashtown and Mcknightstown as well. Less duplication of services = cost savings for all involved.
