The Ironville Post Office was one of the "nostalgic" post offices in Johnson County from 1888-1903. It was located in the home of Jacob F. and Mary Brown Dugger in the Dry Hill community (10th District). After Jacob's death in 1888, their daughter, Nancy Jane Dugger Walker (John Walker) cared for Mary. In 1890 Nancy Jane inherited the land with the home on it.
Mail was received at the home where neighbors came to pick up their mail. The house with its mail slot in the door was still standing in the late 1970s.
Nancy Jane married 2) Charles Hamby Morris on 20 Dec 1891. In 1903 they moved to the New Victory community in lower Washington County, TN and the post office closed.
