Note: The following is one of a series of columns looking at the establishment of the postal system in the nation, southeast Georgia and Bulloch County. Statesboro's mail was carried on the train daily to Rocky Ford, from where a rider carried the mail on to Statesboro's post office where it was sorted. Once the Dover to Statesboro Railway's line was completed, mail would be transferred from the Central’s main-line train to the local Dover train and carried directly into Statesboro.
