|Year / Decade Made|
In 1886, three years before Washington became a state, the small town of Amboy received their very own Post Office. In 1960, to celebrate the Post Office's 75th anniversay, the Post Master organized a celebration. That event was such a hit that the community decided to make it an annual event. More than 50 years later from that first event, the annual celebration continues to take place and is known as the Amboy Territoiral Days as it takes place at Amboy Territorial Park. This button was to commemorate the 1979 Territorial Days celebration.
