Presenting the Past: The Alamo Post Office: Who were all those Bells? ***TWO PHOTOS***

by Beverly Lane

Alamo's post office was the first established in the San Ramon Valley and is remembered as a community gathering place from the beginning. John M. Jones was the first postmaster and, in the 20th century, Bell family members were postmasters for more than 50 years.
