Bellville mural coming along

BELLVILLE — The mural showing the old Bellville elementary school is closer to being finished.

Artist Robin Shoup Wilson said it was her hope to get it done by the Bellville Street Fair. That runs starting with a tractor pull Sunday.

Jim and Pat Snyder own the JP Woodworking building where the school mural is being built. It is the first Bellville mural, which has been arranged by the Bellville Beautification Committee. The mural’s expense is being covered (half by) The Richland Foundation and the other half by Elzy Milling a trade. Mechanics Bank is provide the lighting to illuminate the artwork every evening.
