The "Post Office Museum" is also known as the Transportation & Communication Building. Located near the Old Mill Heritage Centre, this site is the former Spring Bay pioneer Post Office and was relocated to Kagawong in October 1993. The museum was originally built in 1890 and served as a general store and post office.

The Old Mill Heritage Centre was once a pulp mill constructed from nearby limestone. The pulp was shipped by freighter to Kalamazoo, Michigan where it was processed into paper for Sears Roebuck catalogues. Today the building serves as a developing Heritage Centre and is open to the public during the tourist season.

Admission is free but donations are welcome.
