Mural City

A couple years ago I discovered the murals painted in downtown Palatka. Then on a recent trip to look up some property records, I realized there were murals I missed.

Located throughout downtown, the murals represent the history of Palatka, a place known as the “Gem City of the St. John’s River.”

Palatka’s history and cultural identity is illustrated on the sides of buildings tracing events from as early as the city’s founding in 1821.

I especially admired the large peace sign collage tucked in an alley just barely visible from the main road.

Messages of rememberance and love formed the larger work of art giving it special meaning.
