Draper Post Office

The post office was named for miner Silas Draper, the first postmaster. Located south of the Rogue River on the upper reaches of Foots Creek about seven miles SW of Gold Hill, Draper is on a side road connecting West Fork Road and Foots Creek Road.
Draper was actually closer to Rock Point but both post offices were discontinued on the same day with mail service going to Gold Hill.
Where did they go? Following the mail trail of the DPOs of Jackson County, Oregon (SHS 979.5281 S93 2013)
