“This building was constructed in 1937 by the New Deal programs and was nominated to be included in the National Register for Historic Places on February 23, 1990.
The Deming Main Post Office is a red brick, single-story building with limestone belt courses, lintels, sills, and decorative panels. Built at a bid cost of $62,400, the post office building is eligible for the National Register not only for its architecture and association with the history of federal projects in Deming, but also for the Kenneth Adams mural, ‘Mountains and Yucca’ located in the lobby. This piece is specifically mentioned as contributing to the historic significance of the building.”
