Mayville, WI 53050
Title of the artwork: “Wisconsin Rural Scene”
Artists: Peter Roiter
Saturday’s I like to showcase post offices with murals or other forms of artwork. I stopped at in Mayville on my way home from Winneconne, WI. I was visiting my dad and doing some fishing. I decided to take the long road home. Mayville was a great stop which has a wonderful mural. I found it really interesting the placement of the building. Its situated near the center of town on a very large corner lot.When looking down the main street is the first thing you see as you look down the road.
I love the man figure in this painting. I think it’s the action or hard-working appearance seems to standout the most for me. Holding two bails of hay in overalls says something about this man and his work.
Some other goodies are two framed plaques in the lobby. One describes Mayville as a Main street community and other lists former postmasters. Overall a great visit and with some wonderful stuff to see.
