Tyler Texas WPA Murals


These photos are of three murals from the Depression era being cared for and restored by the Smith County Historical Society in Tyler, Texas. Tyler benefited in many ways from the WPA, including a state park, numerous buildings and art.  

These murals are true treasures — capturing scenes from American life. Read more about the history of these murals and the efforts underway to preserve them for future generations at this link.
