WPA Murals at the Red Cloud Post Office
WPA Murals at the Red Cloud Post Office

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.

Yost Farm School
Yost Farm School

This schoolhouse, known as North Star of Webster County School District 81 and referred to as "Little Tin Schoolhouse" was located near Cowles, Nebraska. It was built in 1887 and closed in 1959. In 1989, it was moved to its current location on the Yost Farm. The inside walls feature the original wainscoting. The ante room features an overshoe bench, wash stand, water bucket and tin cups, as well as a coat rack along one wall.

Many school children experience the past by participating in hands on activities at the Yost Farm School. These activities include: churning butter, washing clothes, grinding coffee, peeling apples, roping, playing old fashioned games, and square dancing in the barn. They can also experience what learning was like at a country school. The school farm setting is also used for club meetings, family reunions, church groups, filming movies, and Willa Cather Foundation Spring Conference Activities.
