Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal and Works Progress Administration Projects in the 1930s and 40s included the construction of sixteen post offices throughout West Virginia. In addition to the buildings themselves, the program also provided funding for public art to grace the lobbies of these buildings. This tour includes all sixteen post offices along with their accompanying artworks.
