Originally the log home of Thomas Edwards, the site became important as a stop on the Butterfield Overland Mail Route, which operated from 1858 to 1861 between Tipton, Missouri and San Francisco, California. It was also the first location of the Red Oak Post Office, which was established on March 11, 1868, with Thomas Edwards as postmaster. **
