Post Office Mural – Christiansburg VA

Description

The post office contains a 1939 Section of Fine Arts mural entitled “Great Road” painted John W. de Groot. The mural is a classic example of the “historic valor” series common to many Post Offices built at this time.  In this case the mural is a portrayal of the “taming of the Appalachian area frontier by woodsmen, settlers and the army.”
