Thank you Perkins for all your support !!!
The town of Perkins, Oklahoma
has commissioned Murals by Nora to
create a historical mural on the exterior wall of the town grocery store.
The mural theme will be a pictorial view of Perkins through the years.
Incorporating views of the town dating from the town's conception
in the 1880's to the late 1960's.
Many of the buildings are
original and have had many different
generations of businesses housed in them.
The mural will illustrate the different generations as well as prominent
historical locations, people and events.
Check back weekly for new
pictures and updates.
