The Cocoli Post Office

 

The Cocoli Post Office opened July 1, 1941 and closed June 30, 1954. Stamps back then were only 1/2 cent. When it closed people who lived in Cocoli went to the Naval Station Rodman Post office for their mail. It remained vacant for many years. Just ahead of the termites, bats and cucarachas the Boy Scouts of Cocoli Troop 13 used it briefly. It was a gain vacant. Then it opened as an Arthur Murray Cholita Dance Studio in the mid 80's where couples would dance till the wee hours of the morning to wild music from a blaring jukebox or a local band such as the well-known group called the "String Busters" of the 50's. The band disbanded when their leader Bruce left and joined the Air Force in July of 1958. The refreshments at the dance studio flowed like water... It was always a hot time in the old joint tonight. Yes the end was near for what would finally become of that proud township called Cocoli. Today it is a ghost town with jungle creep advancing on all fronts.
