Decherd, TN 37324
Title of the artwork: “News on the Job”
Artists: Enea Biafora
Type: Wood Carving
Bonus Weekend!!! you get two nice old post offices with artwork this weekend. Yesterday was Livingston and today I bring you Decherd. I hope it’s not too much artwork in one weekend but I figured if you’re a fan of post office, you’d appreciate this.
It’s not often I get to showcase an older post office that has a wood carving instead of a mural. But that is exactly what we have here today. The Decherd Tennessee Post Office is truly a classic and gem in the United States Postal Service collection of old buildings that house wonderful artwork.
Thanks for stopping by
