Portland Baha’i Center Mural – Portland OR

Description

The two panels of the New Deal mural “Development of St. Johns” were commissioned by the Treasury Section of Fine Arts for the St. John’s Station post office. The building served as the St. John’s Station Post Office and is currently the Portland Baha’i Center. These wall murals, located in the entryway, “depict the history and industrial development of the St. Johns area.” (portlandbahai.org)

    The Baha’i Center itself was a WPA built post office.
