Description

The former Greenville Tennessee post office and courthouse at 101 W Summer St. was built in 1904. In 1939, William Zorach installed two wooden carved reliefs depicting “The Resources of Nature” and “Man Power.” The carvings were funded by the Federal Works Agency.

After the old post office and courthouse became a private bank, the reliefs were moved to the current courthouse at this location.
