The Mobile Post Office operated from the parking lot of the Noxen Food Mart between 2006 and early 2009.
 

Post Office

The Noxen Post Office, formerly housed in a historic Victorian building on Main Street, was damaged during the June, 2006 flood.  The operation was moved to a mobile unit in the parking lot of the Noxen Food Mart on Route 29 until a permanent location could be located, but that facility was temporarily closed early in 2009.

Currently, the future of the Noxen Post Office is uncertain, and the branch is in danger of being closed permanently.  Representative Chris Carney has co-sponsored H.R. 658 to modify the procedures governing the closure or consolidation of postal facilities.  Meanwhile, efforts are underway to have the post office relocated to the restored train depot, but until then Noxen is without a post office of any sort.

On December 20th, 2008, the town organized a "Save-Our-Post-Office" Rally in support of keeping a post office in the town of Noxen.  Photos from the rally are below.  Representatives from the Citizens' Voice, the Wyoming County Press Examiner, and WNEP Channel 16 were on hand to cover the event.
