Piggott post officePiggott, Arkansas post office on April 10, 2019, at the Post Office Murals stamps First-Day ceremony
The historic post office in Piggott, Arkansas was constructed in 1937-8 with funds provided by the Treasury Department. Louis A. Simon served as the supervising architect and Neal A. Melick was supervising engineer.
The building also houses an example of New Deal artwork: a mural entitled “Air Mail,” in the lobby. The mural was featured on a sheet of U.S. postage stamps: “Post Office Murals.” The First-Day ceremony for the stamps was held in front of the Piggott post office on April 10, 2019.
