mail pouch

The Mail Pouch Building in Historic Jonesborough, Tennessee
Originally built in 1888 as a saloon, the building now houses The MAIL POUCH, s unique gift and craft shop. It is a reminder of the days when sign painters toured the country, covering barns and buildings with their handiwork.

The Mail Pouch mural is in excellent condition. It was painted in 1902 and re-discovered in the 1960s when an adjacent building was torn down. The 
saloon closed in 1904 when the town voted to prohibit the sale of alcohol.
