4th St., Marlinton — Marlinton Post Office
Edwin Dorsey Doniphan, 1939
The Future depicts a farmer working a field overlooking Marlinton and its industrial tannery. The Marlinton Post Office murals reflect the community’s desire to look to the future, while also celebrating the past. Both Marlinton Post Office murals are pieces commissioned by the United States Treasury Department. Before the Federal Arts Project, the Treasury Department had already established the first federal art program, the Section of Fine Arts.
