Marshall, IL 62441
Title of the artwork: “Harvest”
Artista: Miriam McKinnie (Hofmeier)
Today’s featured post office is from Marshall, Illinois.
I’m always delighted to find additional old photos and artifacts in the lobby of buildings during my site visits. Take Marshall for instance. Someone took the time to hang these old photos in the built-in bulletin boards. Every single old post office with this design that I have visited, has these built-in bulletin board cases.
So it’s wonderful that someone actually too the time to hang them up. It’s those little touches that really makes visiting all these post offices worth it. It’s like stepping into a museum exhibit. So here you go folks, here is the Marshall, Illinois post office exhibit. Complete with a great looking mural.
Not only is this this a great little post office, but it is also a historic art & architecture site. I know little about this designation but there you go. What do you know about it? Please comment and share below.
