Historical Mural to be painted in Lancaster

This is the first draft of 3 to 4 historical murals being planned for the area behind the Grand Theatre in Lancaster. More things will be added & a few things will be tweaked. This is representing the Paint Lick area - Kennedy Plantation, Uncle Tom's cabin, Walker Fox Hounds (my heritage), one of the first horse races in the area & tobacco cutting. This wonderful painting was done by James Crow, a famous equestrian artist, who is one of Garrard County's treasures. We are raising funds for the murals through grants, donations and in-kind resources.
