Attraction Information

Lobby is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week year round

The Red Cloud Post Office is home to three mural panels commissioned as WPA projects. Archie Musick, who studied under Thomas Hart Benton and Boardman Robinson, is the artist who was awarded this project. He aimed to explain through these paintings — “Loading Cattle,” “Stockade Builders,” and “Moving Westward” — the advent of white settlement, the movement of Indian tribes to the west, and the thriving industry of cattlemen. Learn more.
