Anson’s post office lobby features a 12-foot mural, “Cowboy Dance,” painted in 1941 by Jenne Magafan for a Depression-era federal government program employing artists. The scene depicts westerners at a frontier dance, similar to Anson’s real-life Cowboys’ Christmas Ball held in December since 1885.
