The picture mural shows the square before the construction of the Ayers National Bank tower. People were in awe of the arrival of the new building, they thought it was a stunning addition. The former bank was bought out by The Farmers State Bank and Trust Company. The Ayers National Bank had to shut down due to financial reasons during the Great Depression. Also pictured is a streetcar. They were originally pulled by horse and buggy. The mural shows, indirectly, how far the town has progressed.
The mural was inspired by a postcard.
For the kids***
Can you find the blue arch?
