Post Office (former) – Arlington TX

Description

The former post office in Arlington, Texas was constructed with federal Treasury Department funds. (Construction is sometimes mis-attributed to the WPA.) The building contains an example of New Deal artwork: “Gathering Pecans.” Having since been sold, the building is now privately owned; it is presently home to Worthington National Bank.
