Dayton, TN 37321
Title of the artwork: “View From Johnson Bluff”
Artists: Bertram Hartman
I’m always disappointed when I see buildings sold off to private businesses. I’m not sure what I make of this one except that is no longer a post office. At lease the city of Dayton keeps the building maintained and the mural on display for the public. After all that was why they were installed in post offices in the first place, for the public enjoyment.
Any of my fans know when the City of Dayton purchased this building? Any Dayton history buff, have any interesting they like to share about this building?
Thanks for stopping by
