Carnarvon Post Office - 1897 to 1970: Current address: 9271 Hwy 118. 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.Thomas Henry Rogers was the postmaster from Jan 9, 1907 to Sep 6, 1943. During the years that Thomas Rogers and his son Clayton ran the 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.
