Fairhope,  What to Do

The 1890 Historic Montrose Post Office-Montrose, Alabama

If you have a few extra minutes traveling the Scenic Hwy 98 between Fairhope and Daphne, stop by and visit the Historic Montrose Post Office. Montrose is a community that was originally known as Sibley City in honor of Cyrus Sibley, an early landowner in the area. Later the name was changed to Montrose in honor of Montrose, Scotland. A post office first opened under the name Montrose in 1879. It sits just a few hundred yards to the east of the highway.  This tiny building still lists the postmasters that served from 1890 to 1913. A historical marker explains the history of the building and the beauty of the area, and its towering live oak trees make it worthy of a stop.
