Staunton Post Office, Circa 1890, Cook County

Today, Staunton is virtually indistinguishable from Lenox. It is located on the edge of the Lenox city limits and I understand that it was a historic railroad stop. The post office operated from 1890-1923, which probably mirrors the existence of the village as a separate entity. Two other important historic structures survive here: the Sim Harrell House and the T. P. Daughtrey House. Signage on U. S. Highway 41 distinguishes the neighborhood from Lenox proper.
