Not my home post office, but I can claim some tenuous connection to it and just visited while on a very brief, but quite pleasant vacation, in the "mountains" of western North Carolina. At 3,333 feet elevation, Boone, North Carolina, is apparently the highest county seat and town above 10,000 population east of the Mississippi.
This was a WPA project completed in 1940 and then dedicated by James Farley, Postmaster General. At the time Boone's population was only 1,788 yet an estimated 2,500 showed up for the ceremonies, perhaps in part because Farley had just started to campaign for President against Roosevelt. The post office also appears to have been an anchor for the then community as it is right in the center of town.
The PO is on the National Register of Historic Places and we stopped in to mail postcards and to see the WPA mural by artist Alan Tompkins. I'd just learned Tompkins was my sister-in-law's previous father-in-law. His "Daniel Boone on a Hunting Trip in Watauga County" is on canvas and measures 11' 8" x 4' 6." The town is named for Boone who camped there several times and whose sons settled there, hence the subject for the mural.
While the tones of the mural seem a bit muted, and likely have faded some in 81 years, much of the PO appears to be in a good state of maintenance in its original state. The numerous PO boxes are just lovely.
Only one of the four service windows is still in active use. It's labeled "Stamps" and we enjoyed quick courteous service. Next to it the window "General Delivery/Stamps" is unused, as are the following two which still have sharp clear lettering from the 1940s offering long-discontinued services.
