Dr. Luther Hayes House, Cullman historic murals dedicated

The Cullman County Historical Society dedicated its new home, the Dr. Luther Hayes House, as well as several new murals that pay homage to the city's history.

Alabama Tourism Director Lee Sentell told the assembled crowd that Cullman's mural project was the biggest in the state's "2010: Year of Small Town and Downtown" program. The society's past president and current executive board member Dot Gudger, who got the mural project started, and Mayor Max Townsend, who lent support, also spoke.

Artists Bethany Kerr, Jack Tupper, Adrian Scott, Steve Carter, Donald Walker and Cullman Aquatic Center campers with leader Kristie Turner were thanked for their work, as were donors and building owners who allowed murals to be painted on their property.
