Community Spirit

Mural Routes Member(s): Allan Bender Completed: September 1994

This mural recreates a scene showing members of the Highland Creek community working together to build an addition to the Wesley Methodist Chapel in the early winter of 1867. The chapel once stood adjacent to the mural site amongst the tombstones of the pioneer cemetery. Present day residents, businesses and community groups of Highland Creek have joined together with the same spirit of cooperation and vision of their forebears to make this project a reality. A signed limited edition reproduction is available of this mural. Profits are used to pay for the second mural in Highland Creek.

This mural was painted in 1994 as part of the original Heritage Trail; it was later restored by Blinc Studios.
