Post Office Art Road Trip
One of the many pleasures of visiting our region is walking around our traditional town centers.

Venture inside the post offices and you may be surprised to find beautiful and significant works of art usually found in galleries and museums. Such works of art were created during the New Deal Era when the federal government commissioned artists to create murals and sculpture inspired by the community in which they were displayed.
