Post Office


Here is the old post office which like so many post offices these days is not a post office.  One half seems to be a private residence and the other side is a real estate agent.

Rylstone began as a rural centre in the early 1800s. In the 1870s and 1880s substantial stone civic, commercial and religious buildings were built.  These give the town its special character. Today the entire business district is classified as a Heritage Conservation Zone.
