Exciting “Spring Week”

was a smashing success! We welcomed more than 85 visitors, most of whom had never heard of the Spellman. Children and parents both enjoyed the exhibits, museum store, and many completed our scavenger hunt.

Thanks again to our generous partners Highland Street Foundation.

Stamps tell the story of the history of the postal service, and the story of society, cultures and identity through postage stamps. We have extraordinary exhibits and displays throughout the entire museum that illustrate our history and common connections through stamps.

Stamp collecting has been around as long as stamps. Stamps provide relevant and artful content highlighting arts, culture, biography, architecture, prominent individuals, world leaders, science, as well current events, major milestones and nature.

While the primary purpose of stamps throughout history has been to pre-pay for the transportation and delivery of mail, stamps have also helped to preserve histories around the world.

The world’s first postage stamp was the Penny Black invented in 1840 by Sir Rowland Hill, a British administrator and educator, principally known for his development of the modern postal service, which was subsequently adopted throughout the world.
