Post mount residential mailboxes have a long and storied history, dating back to the late 1800s.

The first post mount mailboxes were simple metal boxes that were attached to posts near the front of homes. These mailboxes were often vandalized and stolen, so manufacturers began to develop more secure and durable mailboxes.

In the early 1900s, the United States Postal Service (USPS) began to standardize the design.

In 1915, the USPS introduced the “tunnel style” mailbox, which is still the most common design used today.

Tunnel style mailboxes are made of durable metal and have a hinged door that opens to accept mail. The mail is deposited into a slot at the top of the mailbox, and the letter carrier can insert outgoing mail through a slot at the bottom.

They became increasingly popular in the mid-20th century as suburbanization spread across the United States. Post mount mailboxes were seen as a more convenient and secure way to receive mail than wall-mounted mailboxes or mailboxes that were attached to doors.

Today, post mount mailboxes are the most common type of mailbox used in the United States. They are available in a variety of styles and materials, and they can be customized to match the décor of any home.

Here are some of the key milestones in the history of post mount residential mailboxes:

  • 1890: They are introduced in the United States.
  • 1915: The USPS introduces the tunnel style mailbox, which is still the most common design.
  • 1923: The USPS makes it mandatory for all households to have a mailbox or letter slot.
  • 1950s: Popularity increases as suburbanization spreads across the United States.
  • Today: They are the most common type of mailbox used in the United States.

They have come a long way since their humble beginnings in the late 1800s. They are now more secure, durable, and stylish than ever before.
