"The Saga of Wenatchee"
The old post office (now Wenatchee Valley Museum) contains a 1940 Section of Fine Arts mural by Peggy Strong, The Saga of Wenatchee.
“Peggy Strong, an artist from Tacoma, won a statewide competition to paint the mural. Strong had been injured in a car accident in 1934 and, as a result, she painted the mural from a wheelchair, raising and lowering a platform.” (depts.washington.edu)
