Camerontown Post Office, Glengarry County.

The Post Office opened in Camerontown in 1873.  In 1891, it was renamed Summerstown Station, and in 1926 it became Summerstown.  (McGillivray, pg. 330).  The original name reflected the number of Camerons who lived in the area.

The back of the first envelope.

Meant for Williamstown, this envelope started in Camerontown to Cornwall and returned on the same day and then redirected to Lancaster on the 16t, after which it presumably ended up in Williamstown.

The envelope was donated to the Museum in 1994.
