Palmer Square Post Office (former) – Princeton NJ

Description

The historic former Palmer Square post office in Princeton, New Jersey, was constructed in 1934. It was originally Princeton’s main post office. Now, the building is privately owned. The building contains an example of New Deal artwork, “a controversial 1939 mural depicting Native Americans reacting to the arrival of European colonists, a scene that some consider racist.”   (http://savethepostoffice.com)
