Fred Cole served as the Maricopa postmaster from 1955 to 1982.

The post office was in the Honeycutt Shopping Center until it
was destroyed by fire in 1972. That did not stop mail delivery.
Cole sorted the mail on his front porch with his staff, and it was
delivered the same day. Lost in the fire, however, were historic
photos and artifacts that had been given to the postmaster
for preservation.

The current post office Maricopans use on Hathaway Avenue
was built in 1990. The operation expanded 20 years later to
include an annex building on Honeycutt Road, which
serves as home base for mail carriers.
