A few doors to the south is the Alpha Post Office – quite possibly the finest in the land!  The workers are friendly, helpful and engaged in the community.  The more we can support them, the better chance they’ll be around for even more generations to come!

This building was build by John Harbine for his son Jacob's law practice.

George Volkenand was proprietor of 'Sycamore Stock Farm' in Alpha.  His father Herrmann  had worked as a laborer at John Harbine's oil mill as well as farm hand on Jacob Coy's farm.  Later her was the foreman in the 'Shoup & Harbine Distillery', the Alpha Post Master and the school director for 15 years!  George served as Post Master during Grover Cleveland's second Presidential term and operated the 103-acre family farm, raising Shorthorn and Jersey cattle, Duroc and Poland China hogs.

Alpha has a long history of athletic excellence, with basketball and baseball being local favorites!  The Marshall Brothers sponsored many local teams, the basketball team below being one.  Help us identify the players!
