Auburn Post Office Mural

During the 1930s, President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal created government programs to counter the effects of the Great Depression. Hundreds of post offices were built and the U.S. Treasury commissioned art for many of them. Twelve Nebraska post offices were selected to receive murals.

Ethel Magafan, the artist for the Auburn project, chose a theme depicting local agriculture. The canvas was installed in the post office lobby in 1938. The post office is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
