The post office was often run inside of local businesses, including a service station and grocery/liquor store.
Post office location changes are listed in the USPS Postal Bulletins and in filings kept in the National Archives (p. 939-943). A list of locations has yet to be compiled.
The Millhousen post office suspended service on October 31, 2003. It was officially discontinued six years later on that date.
The comment listed in the closing notice said, "Post Office discontinued. Retain ZIP Code. Establish a place name. Continue to use Millhousen IN 47261 as last line of address."
