General Delivery is a service where the post office holds the mail until the recipient calls for it. It is a common destination for mail for people who are visiting a particular location and have no need, or no way, of having mail delivered directly to their place of residence at that time.

Anaconda is the county seat of Deer Lodge County, in southwestern Montana, located at the foot of the Anaconda Range. Anaconda was founded by Marcus Daly, one of the so-called "Copper Kings", who financed the construction of a smelter on nearby Warm Springs Creek to process copper ore from the Butte mines. The post office in Anaconda was established in 1883.
