The Wichita U.S. Courthouse and Post Office was constructed between 1930 and 1932 at a cost of $1.2 million. This six-story building includes about 175,000 square feet of space with seven courtrooms for U.S. District and U.S. Bankruptcy courts.
It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of a group of Kansas Post Offices with artwork. Two oil-on-canvas murals from 1935-1936, are located on the east and west walls of the lobby. Lobby murals include:
Both received the commissions through a post office mural project awarded by the U.S. Treasury Department's Section on Painting and Sculpture.
