The largest Hand Painted Mural in the United States is right here in Oregon!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty


This is part of my find over the last couple days of, “Really, I didn’t know that’ series and we found this one while visiting the Portland Memorial Mausoleum where my sister was laid to rest. While there, we found that over a two year period, on the back of the building, this hand painted mural was painted on the Westside of the building as is the largest hand painted mural in the United States.

Largest Hand Painted Mural in the United States (Sellwood District of Portland, Oregon)

Something else that was really cool to find out why were there was that the last horse drawn funeral precession was in 1913, since that date they have been using cars. (Really, I didn’t know that, I would have thought it would have been in the 1920s before that service completely stopped.)

Hi Todd... what a wonderful mural.  It makes the building blend in nicely with the surrounding nature!

Wow, that's a mural, there.  I've been photoing/blogging murals around the Charleston area, but nothing that large.  I imagine that took some funding to create.  Murals do enhance the beauty of a city.
