Murals: History of Lincoln, New Hampshire

Hidden away in a Post Office in a strip mall are two beautiful murals representing "the growth of Lincoln from the granting of its charter in 1764, to its settlement and development as a mill town with a typical small-town American flavor." One highlighted scene shows President Eisenhower speaking at the high school in 1955. The murals, painted by artist Robert Hughes, were dedicated at the opening ceremonies of the Lincoln Post Office on Memorial Day, 1960.
