Mrs. Adaline Dickman Miller founded the first post office in Ruskin on August 7, 1908. The post office was located in one of the dormitories of the first Ruskin College. The doorway to the post office can be seen on the left of the photo, and Dr. McA Miller on the far left. Mrs. Miller is on on the bridge, in white.

After the college fire of 1918 the post office was moved to the college president's house.
