"What Is the History of Santa Claus, Indiana?"

Located in southwest Indiana, Santa Claus, Indiana, is a unique destination for kids of all ages. But, despite its unique name, the town didn't start out as Santa Claus. Established in 1854, Santa Claus, Indiana, was first named Santa Fe, Indiana. The original name lasted until 1856 when the town attempted to establish a post office. The town's application was refused because another Santa Fe, Indiana, already existed. After several town meetings, Santa Claus became the new town name. The story of how the town citizens chose the famous moniker is unknown. More from this guide...

The stamp artwork is selected from art student submissions from nearby Heritage Hills and South Spencer High Schools. The post office receives over 400,000 pieces of mail in December, while the average for the rest of the year is about 13,000 pieces of mail per month.
