The mural showcases the power of the river, both its natural power and how humans harnessed its power for industry.
Backstory and Context
The second mural, located at 1 South Parker Dr., represents the growth of Janesville by water. Larry Schultz of Milton, WI was the artist chosen to complete this mural, and his creation evokes how generations of Janesville citizens harnessed the power of water to manufacture goods, and how the city's economic success was dependent on this natural resource. Also on display is the historic Frances Willard School house, once located along the Rock River and now residing at the Rock County Historical Society Campus.
