At NKY Views, we try not to duplicate images already online at the Kenton County Library's Faces and Places section, which contains thousands of old Kentucky Post pictures among other things. But we're making an exception for this one, because it's a great image of the Morgan Post Office, and besides, there's a dog on the roof of that truck.

The 1914 L&N Shippers' Guide had this description of Morgan. “A Morgan-station correspondent writing to the Covington Ticket under the date of June 1, says: ‘The Ku Klux have visited this neighborhood. They took Henry Winston and his son and son-in-law, beat them nearly to death, and then ordered them to leave, which they did,’” Courier-Journal, June 5, 1875
Morgan named after famous Civil War General John Hunt Morgan? More here. “The secesh ladies of the town of Morgan, Ky., feel very unpleasantly - they recently kissed a Federal officer by mistake, supposing him to be a rebel.”
