Mathews County

As you drive around Mathews County – in the very eastern part of the Middle Peninsula – you may stumble across one of the unique area Post Offices: they vary greatly in size and description, but the best part is the experience of getting to them.  Most of the Post Offices in Mathews are off the beaten path and down some gorgeous tree-lined rural roads.  Each leg distance varies – see below or check our website posts for more information:

Make it a personal challenge to run/ jog/ bike to each one – details & distances are above.  You may notice that routes between each are not necessarily the “straight line” – I like to keep off main (busiest) roads as much as possible.  If you would like company when running, just announce your intentions on Facebook:  I will try to join as many as I’m able.  If you go solo, make sure you post a picture on our Facebook site – who knows:  completing all legs of the “Mathews Postal Journey” may earn you a nice reward!  Click on the links to get more information on each leg of the journey.
