Kimmswick Post Office

The 1913 Post Office

The Kimmswick Post Office has been in continuous operation since the day it opened on April 22, 1858. It has moved to other places since it was established, but it returned to this location in 1974.
The founder of Kimmswick, Theodore Kimm, was appointed Kimmswick's first Postmaster in 1858. Before that time, the mail was delivered two miles down the Mississippi River to Sulphur Springs Landing and used that post mark.
Today, the Kemmswick Post Office is in business for the residences and businesses in town, and letters are still CANCELED BY HAND!

Barbagallo House (Wine and Cheese Shop) - Kimmswick

Barbagallo House (Wine and Cheese Shop)

The Barbagallo House: Wine and Cheese Shop

The Barbagallo House was the third log building to be moved to Kimmswick to be restored. In 1975, this building was on Green Park Road in St. Louis County and was about to be torn down to make room for something industrial. The Barbagallo family then gave the home to Kimmswick to move. It was taken down, and the logs were numbered; this process took two months to take down. It was rebuilt on a new foundation and was then restored. It is a Missouri-French style and dog trot.
The first two rooms, one on each end with a roof over a space between the two rooms is called DOG TROT and was said to date from Revolutionary times.
Today, this house is a Wine and Cheese Shop.

Address: Corner of Second and Oak Streets
