            Hasty postoffice was established in southeastern Hamilton June 7, 1878, to accommodate the lumbering people, at that time doing a large business there.  Ezra A. Cole was the first postmaster, followed by Charles M. House, November 29, 1880; Henry Winslow, June 26, 1882; Evan M. Potter, December 18, 1882; Lewis C.
