Post Office Mural – Horton KS

Description

“The Horton Post Office was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. The two murals on the Walls, “Picnic in Kansas” and “Changing of Horses for the Pony Express” were painted by Colorado artist, Kenneth Evett in 1938 and 1939 respectively. The latter is thought to be the only painting of the Pony Express in any Post Office in the United States.”
