The mural “Harvesting Tobacco” by Roy Schat was commissioned by the federal Treasury Section of Fine Arts funds. Originally created for the then-new Whiteville post office, the work was completed in 1941. Since the post office’s relocation the mural is now on display at Southeastern Community College in Whiteville, NC.
