Downtown Boone Post Office

Construction on the historic downtown Boone United States Post Office was begun in 1938 and completed in 1940. Erected as part of the Works Progress Administration funding program, the post office was meant to accommodate the growing population of Boone and an increased postal volume. Recent restoration efforts have allowed for the preservation of many of the building’s beautiful original architectural components. Included in that restoration process was the mural on the east wall of the post office lobby. The mural, created in 1939 by Alan Tompkins of Stratford, Connecticut with input from local residents, depicts the town namesake, Daniel Boone. Visitors can stop by the post office at 680 W King St.
