Description

The historic former post office building in Erwin, Tennessee was constructed with Treasury Department funds. Located just down the road from the post office that replaced it, the building’s cornerstone dates the New Deal post office to 1936. The building has been home to a florist for more than a decade, and it is also home to a sizable mural created well after the advent of the New Deal.
