Welcome to the

Quanah, Texas, Post Office Mural

Quanah, Texas, is located about 12 miles south of the Oklahoma-Texas border and 75 miles west of Wichita Falls.

When I arrived in Quanah, its post office was closed, so I had to take a photo of the mural from behind the glass door. Surprisingly enough, the photo turned out pretty well!

This mural, entitled "The Naming of Quanah", was done by Jerry Bywaters in 1938. It is oil on canvas. Quanah got its name from Chief Quanah who is depicted in the mural.
