Visitor Tips and News About Town of Murals
Lake Placid is about 100 miles out of Tampa. The town has over 60 murals painted on buildings, each with a theme and "hidden item." It is known as the Town of Murals and the Caladium Capital of the World.[William Henry, 09/02/2012]
Caladium sounds like an exotic mineral, but it's the scientific name for Elephant Ear plants. The murals are indeed everywhere in the small town. Three of them are dedicated to a local clown named Toby, one to the turpentine industry, one to a Lake Placid bank robbery.
