A new post office opened on Johnson Street in Holt in November 1965 with a dedication ceremony presided by Congressman Bob Sikes. The accompanying Pensacola News Journal news article says the new brick building features “modern trends, a lot of grass and far more space” than previous post office facilities in Holt.
Staff for Holt Post Office were Margaret Livingston, postmaster, who had served since 1939; Reese Livingston, substitute clerk; Iris Adams, substitute clerk; Glen Wilkinson, rural carrier; Thelma Brown, substitute rural carrier; and Frank Griffith, mail messenger.
The building is now occupied by Charlie and Kerrie Stillman who operate a fence company from the premises.
The current post office building opened in 1985.
