Photo Gallery: New mural depicts Steamup

May 2013 Posted in Arts, Culture & History, Photo Gallery

The Silverton Mural Society installed its latest mural on April 25. It was created by Silverton artist Tonya Smithburg and commemorates the Harvey Mikkelson Steam Engine Festival – a precursor to the Great Oregon Steam-up in Brooks – that was held in Bethany from 1954 to 1966. The mural was installed in four sections on the west facade of the Silverton Elks Lodge on First Street. A dedication ceremony will take place on Saturday, June 15.
