Wood & Swink Post Office

Evinston, Florida.

In 1884, the Florida Southern Railroad went through what is now Evinston, where a General Store and Post Office were built. In 1909 H.D. Wood and Robert Evins bought the store.  Fred Wood became the Postmaster in 1934 and served in that capacity for 44 years, longer than any other Postmaster in the State of Florida.

The Store and Post Office are on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and is one of the few Country Store-Post Offices remaining today.

The painting was done for several shows where I participated, in North Central Florida, two of which were in Gainesville.  I had taken pictures of the horse drawn mail wagon from the Greenfield Village Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.  I included it in the design of the painting.
