The Pettigrew Street post office.

Wilson Daily Times, 15 February 1950.

Not only did I not know there was ever a post office branch on Pettigrew Street, I cannot imagine where on Pettigrew Street it stood. Anyone know?

Woodard Station moved to 1318 East Nash Street in 1966 and operated until 2011. Since its closure, there has been no postal facility east of the tracks or from Wilson’s Main Branch east to Saratoga.
