Baseball Nun and Whiskey Mural

A long mural depicts a diverse city -- from nuns to bourbon whiskey. There's a parking area in front of the mural.

[Stephen Francia, 06/10/2020]

Painted by Michael Cooper in August 2019, the mural was meant to celebrate the town, understandably proud of its nuns, horses, hay, kids' softball, olde timey train, and whiskey.
