 Cover Commemorates 100 Years of Rural Free Delivery

This cover honors the centennial of a program that brought mail service to millions of rural Americans.  Until the late 19th century, citizens of rural areas had to travel to the nearest Post Office to get their mail.  The service began in 1896 with just five routes covering ten miles.  Over time, the US Post Office expanded Rural Free Delivery to every household in America.  The First Day of Issue cover features stamp #3090, which was issued in honor of the anniversary.
