Post office / Mural is still hung in the original building.
Filling the wall space above the postmaster’s door is a mural title Prairie Fire painted by Ethel Magafan and installed in 1940. The mural shows a woman grasping a child in a a Conestoga wagon about to be engulfed in flames. The wagon is pulled by four yoked oxen agitated by the conflagration. Two men carrying shovels rush to dig a break to stop the fire from spreading. The scene vividly depicts the action and chaos associated with traveling across and settling the prairies.
Ethel Magafan (1916-1993) was born in Chicago but spent most of their lives in Colorado.
