Description

From Flickr user Courthouselover in 2012: “Built in 1940, this former post office today acts as the Alvin Historical Museum. The old mural that once hung in this post office’s lobby today is rolled up in storage awaiting restoration.” Since then, the mural has been restored, thanks to the efforts of former Texas Rangers pitcher Nolan Ryan and his wife Ruth. It now hangs in the museum.

    Thanks! We’ve updated the entry, and added a separate entry on the mural itself.
