Post Office Art and Architecture

New Image

During the New Deal Era, artists were commissioned to create murals and sculpture reflecting the community’s history. Travel back in time and enjoy the beautifully rendered scenes of our agricultural, industrial, and rich historical heritage.

This tour features eleven post offices. Eight of these feature artworks from the New Deal Era (Bloomsburg, Danville, Mifflinburg, Milton, Muncy, Northumberland, Renovo, and Selinsgrove). The other three (Bellefonte, Lewisburg, and Williamsport) are wonderful examples of federal architecture.

WVIA-TV (PBS) recently produced a 60 minute film about this unique post office art and architecture road trip. View the 2 minute trailer on YouTube!
