Picture Post Card - Carnegie Public Library, Corsicana
Dated 1911

 

While the 1904 Carnegie library was razed in 1967, it still lives in this 1998 mural by Brad Smith. The library was originally built at a cost of $25,000, which put it in the middle range of the 32 Carnegie libraries that were originally built in Texas. This mural is a fine example of a forgotten building brought back to life in an affordable manner.
