BALTIC ‒ Every weekday morning, Zack Triplett heads out from the Baltic post office, bringing the U.S. Postal Service to nearby Amish residents in Coshocton and Holmes counties.
He goes to about 20 Amish businesses to pick up packages and makes lengthy, scheduled stops in Farmerstown and New Bedford. Residents in those two communities walk up or come by bicycle or horse-drawn buggy to the “Post Office on Wheels” to mail packages, buy stamps or conduct any other type of business that people would do at a brick-and-mortar post office.
“This is kind of like their post office. It definitely helps them out so they don’t have to travel all the way down to Baltic,” Triplett said.
