Lincolnton post office mural to be rededicated

On Wednesday, August 10, at 9:00 a.m., the Lincoln County Historical Association will rededicate the “Threshing Grain” mural by Richard Jansen at the Lincolnton Post Office.
In addition to the rededication, the Association will display nine paintings by the mural`s artist that his stepson has donated to the museum.
The Federal Government commissioned the “Threshing Grain” mural in 1938 as part of the former U.S. Department of the Treasury`s section of painting and sculpture.
On Saturday, August 27, from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., the Association will offer a new program designed to introduce potential volunteers to the various volunteer opportunities at the Lincoln County Museum of History.
Staff will provide a brief history of our organization, a program on current and future projects, a tour of our facility, and an in-depth exploration of the museum`s volunteer opportunities.
People interested in participation should contact the museum immediately to reserve their spot. The Association is limiting the number of participants to 35. Lunch will be provided for the participants.
