Murals tell the colorful history of Tehachapi.
Downtown Tehachapi is a quaint area of shops, stores, boutiques, restaurants and markets. What you are looking for is the murals that have been painted on the side walls of buildings and even a retaining wall. I was unable to photograph them all but I do have a few. It is refreshing to see beautiful murals that depict a time or date in the history of a city than to see the blight of the big cities with the graffiti which shows disrespect for the community. My favorite one is called "People Of The Mountains” by Colleen Mitchell-Veyna. It is the artists view of the Kawaiisu or Nuwa tribes village life who inhabited the area hundreds of years ago. The total mural was fantastic to see and I took a photo close up of the domed huts called kahnis which I felt told the story of peace and contentment in the Tehachapi Valley. Take the time when visiting Tehachapi to see the murals and to get an idea of small town America that takes pride in their community.

Directions: Downtown Tehachapi within the streets of Tehachapi blvd and E Street from Pauley Street to Mojave Street. Just look around to find the murals, that's half the fun.
