Did You Know?
We love receiving your mail because it is in our DNA. A June 10, 1881 Napa County Reporter advertisement reported on “Oakville Station—Where James McQuaid officiates as Railroad agent, Postmaster, and Wells, Fargo and Company’s agent, also dispensing at a reasonable figure, all kinds of general merchandise to people of the vicinity, from a calico dress to a keg of tenpenny nails.”
Former Oakville Grocery owner James McQuaid used to tend the store, act as a railroad agent, and serve as the Oakville postmaster from the office inside our store. To this day the post office is still located on our property, though we are sure McQuaid would have loved the convenience of email on a busy day.
