Rinard Post Office
Established 1st March, 1924

Heritage of the High Country
A History of Del Bontia and
surrounding Districts Page 63

The W. O. Millers ran a small store in Rinard district. Some people of that area received mail in Whiskey Gap, and some in Del Bonita. As Mrs. Miller was opposed to the use of liquor, she didn't like to send or receive mail at Whiskey Gap address.

This among other factors such as distance, led to the establishment of Rinard Post Office in the electoral district of Lethbridge. The Post Office was established 1 March 1924, located SW-17-1-22-W4 with Mrs. R. J. Miller as Postmaster.

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