The old Pennine Post Office was a landmark that had been located on Hwy 27 about three miles south of Spring City. It was formerly known as the post office for Sheffield, Tennessee. The name was changed to Pennine to avoid confusion in railroad shipments with Sheffield, Alabama. Prior to being called Sheffield, it had been known as Miller’s Station. For many years in the community, the post office-store was the center of activity as people flocked in for their mail and groceries. The store had multiple owners in the past. Some of the later ones were White and Hattie Beard, and the current owner was Earl McMillen, who lived next door at the time when this photo was taken in April of 1975.
