|Several very large murals commemorate the history of the town of Twenty-Nine Palms.
I took photos of three of these, which present local events from several historic eras.
|A couple named Campbell played a large role in the town during the early part of the 20th century.
|Another mural is a memorial to the miners of the early days in this area.
|The Oasis of Mara is the subject of another mural. This oasis was once an important crossroads for trade
among the native peoples of California. We took a walk at this site Friday morning.
|On the Park Service Building at the Oasis of Mara is a mural dedicated to Minerva Hoyt,
whose recognition of the value of the area was instrumental in eventually creating the park.
|Many other murals, such as this one, give the town an interesting look.
I’ll post others later, to share with Sami’s Monday Murals.
