I realized recently that I have not wrote much about the postal history of the area. Just like the one-room schools that were found throughout the county, the same applies to post offices of another era. It was the construction of the Western Pacific Railroad that was the catalyst for the creation of the town of Doyle. The Doyle Post Office was established on January 29, 1908. However, the region was not without mail service. On December 29, 1869 the Long Valley Post Office was established at the Doyle Ranch, just a short distance south of would later become Doyle, and its first postmaster was John W. Doyle.
