All murals must have something symbolic to the Moundsville and Marshall County area.  Each mural needs to tell a story about our rich history. Listed below are some examples that might spark interest to all:

 

Coal miners working in the late 1800's in the coal mines

 

Paddle boats moving people and supplies up and down the Ohio River

 

The building of the Narrows

 

B & O Railroad History

 

Rosby's Rock

 

Marx's Toy Operation

 

Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel

 

Former WV Penitentiary

 

The Grave Creek Mound

 

Fostoria Glass

 

Frontier History such as Lewis & Clark, Lewis Wetzel, the Tomlinson Family & More

 

Jefferson Avenue Business District with cars of the time and trolley

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The UMAC wishes to breathe new cultural life into the city with the mural project.  The murals will be drawn by local artists , and the city will be given the story behind each mural.

Bringing History to Life

Murals:

Why should we help?

The UMAC wants to provide the City of Moundsville and Marshall County with quality 3D murals that will give locals and visitors an insight into the rich history of our city. With these murals, you will be able to glimpse into the history of our town. Not only will this bring culture to our city, but the murals will provide tourists with an insight into our history.
