Hacke Post Office

Heritage of the High Country
A History of Del Bontia and
surrounding Districts Page 61

Hacke Post Office established 1-6-1914
Name changed to Twin River 1-7-1922

On May 6, 1914 the announcement came that Hacke Post Office had been granted to Township 1, Range 20, with William Hacke as postmaster. This was good news to the settlers in that area as they had travelled to Milk River, Raymond, or Magrath for mail.

On June 1, 1914, the Hacke Post Office in the electoral district of Lethbridge was established. It was located in the William Hacke home, and mail was brought once a week from Magrath with a stop at the Del Bonita Post Office on the way.

The following is a list of the postmasters who served the post office.
