Troutdale Mural Unveiling & Dedication

September 28, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

A dedication ceremony is planned for Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 2pm.  The event is free & open to the public.

The mural depicts Troutdale as a still-rural railroad town, with a main street that had buildings only on its south side. There’s no exact date for the imagined scene, but it’s an approximation of the pre-Prohibition era of 1913 to 1919

Clara Larsson, the town’s first female mayor, can be seen riding in a four-wheel phaeton carriage, while a poster in the background advocates for women’s suffrage. Men offload barrels and boxes of liquor near Aaron Fox’s general store, while another truck hauls celery.

Sam Hill and Samuel Lancaster — the financier and engineer who fought tirelessly for the creation of the Columbia River Highway — are speeding west in a Model T.
