"Mural-Family Farms of Santa Paula" Santa Paula Local Custom Tip by Tugboatguy
Santa Paula Local Customs: 9 reviews and 35 photos
Santa Paula is billed as the Citrus Capital of the World, and a series of large municipal murals hand-painted by local artists adorns outside walls of buildings in and near the compact downtown. All are suitable for a pleasant day walking tour showing history and culture of the area.
The Family Farms of Santa Paula mural honors the rich agricultural heritage of Santa Paula's pioneering farm families with a series of vividly colored vignettes of farm life. It is located on an east facing wall of the Bank of America building just off Main Street near 7th Street at 715 E. Main Street. Without a wide angle lens which would distort the mural, I elected to take a series of photos to picture each panel. Please be sure to view them all. Each mural has a bronze plaque of dedication with more information. This mural was completed in 2002.
Free maps for a walking tour of the nine murals are available at the Santa Paula Chamber of Commerce located at the historic railroad depot at 10th Street and Santa Barbara Avenue or online at the website listed below. The Chamber's phone number is also listed for more information.
