Pioneer Days Mural
A buckskin-clad frontiersman beckons modern-day gawkers to view the bend in the Ohio River that will one day become Steubenville. All that's missing is a helpful "You Are Here" arrow to point to the future shopping center parking lot where you stand.
The mural's periphery is a painted-on archway with fake carvings of an art deco Liberty spilling vegetables onto thankful settlers, and a muscular man clutching thunderbolts and a big gear. Above them, a modern family stares vacantly. And above them, atop the building, stands a miniature Statue of Liberty.
Although now faded, when this mural was painted by artist Eric Grohe and unveiled in 1997, it was reportedly so bright and three-dimensional that birds would crash into it.
