Sycamore St., Elkins — Forest Service Building
Steven Donahos, 1939
The mural was slated to be installed in the Huntingdon post office but the locals deemed it too depressing. It was then offered to the Logan, WV post office but declined. It finally was placed in the Forestry Building in Elkins. The second mural depicting a forest tower was painted as a compromise.
As with the Marlinton Post Office murals, these installments were funded by the U.S. Treasury Department’s federal art program, the Section of Fine Arts.
