East Sioux Falls, home to this humble post office, is today a ghost town, but once was a spot where much store was set by the way you wore your hat. The short-lived town, linked to the rapid rise and demise of a local quarry, was set in Minnehaha County, named for the heroine of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s epic poem, “The Song of Hiawatha” (1855).
