The historic former Guymon post office had housed a New Deal mural entitled “Harvest.” The work was commissioned by the Treasury Section of Fine Arts and was completed by artist Jay Risling in 1939. However, the work was heavily damaged and is no longer on-site.

Per Jimmy Emerson, “The mural is in storage, albeit in terrible condition, at the No Man’s Land Museum in Goodwell, OK.”
