1996-10-15 - Photo Staff. Such Bliss! There was once a general store and post office 1.75 miles out the Edmonton Road at Bliss. Willard Staples last ran the establishment. He followed Ray Claycomb. In 1993, Kenneth Scott bought the entire town for $600 and razed the building to provide access to his farm. The road in front of the store is now the G.V. Bardin Road. A bridge across Butler Fork Creek behind the store was built by the late Elvin Corbin and the late Tim Hardwick, Hardwick was the father of Columbia Mayor Curtis Hardwick. The bridge remains in excellent condition today. The post office played a major role in many lives. Mrs. Scott remembers mailing packages to Kenneth in 1952-53 while he was in Korea. This item first appeared in Issue 8 of the print edition of Columbia! Magazine.
