Inside the Compton Post Office is a mural depicting a Catholic Friar blessing a neophyte, as well as Spanish Dons in their regalia roaming the landscape on fine bred horses, Spanish structures, bear and bull fights, grazing sheep, and a shepherd tending to his flock. This mural is a nostalgic representation of the Rancho era.
