PHF Featured in Article
The Postal History Foundation was recently featured in the Associated Press's article "5 Reasons Why Your Kid Collects Stamps" by Melissa Rayworth. Through this nationally syndicated article, we continue our mission of encouraging budding philatelists and demonstrating the importance of teaching kids through stamps.

Fantastically Frightening Philately
Our annual Halloween exhibit showcases terrifying topicals with the likenesses of Alfred Hitchcock, Edgar Allen Poe, monsters, and more. You’ll visit particularly petrifying places with postmarks of Devil’s Tower, Skull Valley, and other ghastly haunts. Beware the Chamber of Philatelic Horrors, where the appearance of some appalling stamps might fill your heart with dread, and where the connection between a Victorian serial killer and the U.S. Post Office are explored. Don’t forget to visit the dead letter office, where a gaggle of ghosts deliver mail to their final resting place. And recoil in recoil in fear at the cats, skulls, and devils used on Civil War cachets.
Come join us for an exceptionally eerie experience… if you dare.
