FIRST DAY AIR MAIL COVERS AVAILABLE
Seventy-five years ago, DuBois and Clearfield County were part of history. May 14, 1939, DuBois and Clearfield were both stops on the newly conceived air mail pickup route, one where the planes did not land, but snagged the mail while in flight. A replication of the inaugural flight was held on May 17, 2014, between Clearfield and DuBois. Stamped first day covers from the May 17, 2014, flight are now available from the DuBois Area Historical Society at a cost of $2.50 per first day cover. Contact the Society for ordering information.
