Visitor Tips and News About Majestic Dean Martin Mural
Steubenville has 25 beautiful murals painted on the outside of downtown buildings. Really nice ones. But Dino is still the main attraction. His mural is the nicest, and it's next to the Kroger's Supermarket, where everybody can see it.
And they've renamed a stretch of Rt. 7, the main drag, Dean Martin Boulevard. It doesn't pass by glamorous casinos and nightclubs, though...just smoky power plants and rusty steel bridges, but, hey, they did the best they could.[Gunnar Johnson, 08/03/2009]
The mutual appreciation is obvious -- one mural panel depicts Dean Martin in a homecoming parade through Steubenville. And since Dean didn't abandon his roots -- like so many other celebs -- Kroger's shows gratitude by selling potted plants at the bottom of his mural staircase.
