- Helbock, Richard W. (2004) United States Post Offices, Volume VI - The Mid-Atlantic, p. 135, Scappoose, Oregon: La Posta Publications. (Helbock also lists Malden PO as established 1879 and discontinued 1961. This probably means there was a change of name to Malden in 1879 and that Malden became a Rural Branch of Charleston in 1961).
