    It is amazing how things change over time. I was a US Army Recruiter and my office was located on the second floor. What a beautiful building especially inside. I hope it never changes like some Federal Buildings have over the years. From 1975 until 1980 I truly enjoyed my Military assignment here with my family. If not for my sake please keep the Federal Building with the US Post Office as was and is don’t change HISTORY!

  2. Nowadays, community murals are a mode of expression for artists in every graphic style imaginable: abstract, photorealistic, surrealist, expressionist and graffiti, to name just a few. Let’s just take care of history.

  3. Murals make our neighborhoods beautiful! They add stories and color to our building walls and streets. Murals attract new local businesses, help bring customers to pre-existing locations, and boost the economy of an area. It’s an asset to the place!
