Wichita U.S. Courthouse
401 North Market St.
Wichita, KS 67202
The Wichita U.S. Courthouse and Post Office was constructed between August 1930 and April 1932 for a total cost of $1.2 million. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of a group of Kansas Post Offices noted for its artwork. Two oil-on-canvas murals, painted in 1935-1936, are located on the east and west walls of the lobby. Lobby murals include: Pioneers in Kansas, by artist J. Ward Lockwood and Kansas Farming, by artist Richard Haines. Both received the commissions through a post office mural project awarded by the U.S. Treasury Department's Painting and Sculpture Section. This six-story building includes about 175,000 square feet of space with seven courtrooms for U.S. District and Bankruptcy Courts.
