Preserving the Memories Through Escalon's New Mural

There is much history behind the town of Escalon, one way we know is by the people who lived during those times. Many cherish the memories of that time and maintained them so others are able to enjoy them also. A way we can conserve those remembrances is by the local museums. The Escalon museum has taken much pride in caring for the commemorations of the early times of Escalon. The museum has dedicated their wall for a mural representing Escalon during the early 1900's.

Alexandria who is the artist of the beautiful mural has been professionally painting since 2001. She paints not only in Escalon but also painted several other murals in Riverbank. She also enjoys riding her horses in her spare time. When my Oma and I spotted her painting the mural we decided to stop and introduce ourselves. While talking with her she mentioned that she was homeschooling her three children. You can envision by the picture all the detail of what it was like in the early 1900's. Thank you Alexandria for making Escalon beautiful with your artwork. We are looking forward to seeing more of your murals in the future.
