"Arrival of the Post, 1780"
Alexander Clayton painted “Arrival of the Post, 1780” (oil on canvas) for the Elkton post office with funding from the Treasury Section of Fine Arts. During renovations in the 1970’s, the mural was removed. It was restored but has remained in storage in the basement of the post office. The postmaster is glad to show it off.
