• Post Office Mural - Christiansburg VA
    The historic downtown Christiansburg post office houses a 1939 Section of Fine Arts mural, entitled "Great Road," painted John W. de Groot. The mural is a classic example of the “historic valor” series common to many Post Offices built at this time. In this case the mural is a portrayal of the “taming of the Appalachian area frontier by woodsmen, settlers and the army.”
