Post Office Mural – Lynden WA

Description

The historic Lynden post office contains a 1942 Section of Fine Arts mural by Mordi Gassner entitled Three Ages of Phoebe Goodell Judson.

“In 1870, Judson co-founded the town of Lynden with her husband, Holden Allen Judson. She lived in the community until her death in 1926 at age 94. Just 2 months earlier, she had self-published a memoir, “A Pioneer’s Search for an Ideal Home.” Murals depicting pioneer live and early European-American settlement were a popular subject for New Deal murals.”
