The Peterson Road was on the dividing line between Minden and Stanhope Townships, and the post office during these years was on the Minden side of the road, located in the general store that had a number of owners over time. Source: Nila Reynolds, In Quest of Yesterday
During the years that Thomas Rogers and his son Clayton ran the store (Rogers Store) and post office, a very stern-looking Queen Victoria stared down on all who came to the postal counter from a picture on the wall immediately above and behind the clerk. This picture is now in the possession of the Stanhope Museum.
