Description

The historic post office building in Tahlequah, Oklahoma was constructed with federal funds and completed in 1937. It has been re-purposed as the municipal Chamber of Commerce.[1]

“The building, built in 1936 at a cost of $24,000,  was the one time home of our local post office.  After the post office moved to its current location, the building served as the accounting department of First Bank & Trust Co. and was donated to the Chamber by Bank IV.”[3]

Contains a New Deal Art Mural titled “Choctaw Ball-Play” by Manuel Bromberg
