The historic former post office building in Willoughby, Ohio housed an example of New Deal artwork: “White Man’s First Sight of Lake Erie” by Sterling B. Smeltzer. The work was commissioned by the federal Treasury Section of Fine Arts and completed in 1938. Unfortunately, the whereabouts of the mural are presently unknown.
