New Cullman mural

Behind the main office of First Federal Savings and Loan across the street from the courthouse, the newest historical mural depicts Cullman in the 1880s through photographs. The mural, by Wallace State Community College art professor Adrian Scott, will be displayed when the savings and loan doesn't have promotions to advertise.

Cullman in the 1780s, first train murals

Above, Jack Tupper is working on a mural of the first train to stop in Cullman. It's located on 2nd Avenue NE between Young and Elizabeth steets, viewable from the shaved ice stand.

Below, summer campers from the Cullman Aquatics Center helped paint a mural of Cullman in the 1780s, when Indians were the main residents. The mural is in an alleyway on 4th Avenue SE, between 1st and 2nd streets on the side of Consign and Design.
