Sending my heart to Oregon, PA

Sending my heart to Oregon, PA

The small town of Oregon once boasted a mill, a school a church, and (from 1846-1912) a post office.

Sometime around 1908, Miss Lillie Bard received an embossed postcard with a message of devotion.

Interestingly, the postcard was hand-canceled by placing an “X” over the postage stamp; there is no date stamp.

Made in Germany, the postcard lacks any other identifying information.

Nevertheless, it was treasured by Lillie and survived more than a century.
