Administrative history

The Kingston Village Post Office (now Greenwood) was opened in 1842 and was located in H.D Woodbury's store. At the time of the establishment of the Kingston Village Post Office, Nova Scotia's postal service was under the jurisdiction of Britain's Imperial Postmaster General, with provincial postal services being overseen by a Deputy Postmaster General. In 1851, the responsibility for Nova Scotia's postal service was passed to the provincial government, and a provincial Postmaster General was appointed. Under the terms of the 1867 British North America Act, Canada's new federal government assumed responsibility for all postal services in the Dominion. In April, 1868, the newly-created federal Post Office Department took over all postal operations across Canada.
