Worthington National Bank

The Arlington Post Office was built in 1939 within
the original town site. The building served as the
City's first permanent post office. It was designed
by Louis A. Simon, Supervising Architect of the U.S.
Treasury Department, and built by the Federal
Works Agency. The structure's architecture is
representative of the Classical Revival style that
was typical of many post offices constructed
during the Depression. The building lobby is
noteworthy for its Otis Dozier mural "Gathering
Pecans," which depicts a family gathering and
sacking pecans. Owing to the extensive pecan
orchards established by O.S. Gray in west
Arlington, this was a major industry in the city at
the time. This building served as the city's main
Post Office until 1964. In 1965, the Arlington
Independent School district took ownership and
used it for many years. This structure was listed
nn the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.
In 2001, Worthington National Bank purchased and
restored the building.
