Each mural was created by local artists. There are 8 in all, each one telling an interesting story about hometown people, places and events. Be sure to see them all on the murals page.
The antique tractor art was a co-operative effort involving the Knox City
High School Vocational Ag department, local artists and painters, and
several local businesses. There are 6 tractors located up and down Hwy 6
and Hwy 222, each unique in its own special way. The tractors for this
project were donated by A.P. Denton Jr. There's more on the Tractor Art
