  1. Tom….Another interesting posting from you. Pertaining to the Cross post office, it is now a modern building located on the east side of highway 6. There is a free-standing metal state historical sign (Marker ID SCHM 8-26) in front of it that reads “This post office, originally named Cross Mill, was established in 1879. Adam Cross, a local storekeeper and Civil War veteran, was first postmaster.” – on both sides. From that, I would assume that the old post office building was earlier located on this same site, but was torn down (or burned) and replaced with the newer building. The sign was erected by the Berkeley County Historic Preservation Commission in 1992, but the new building has been there since at least 1994.
