The mural will go on display Friday. It was sketched by Duron Lewis, an Enid resident and local artist.

The mural will contain 30 images from the time of the land rush until the mid-1900's. Images will include the first Enid jail, Lincoln School, Chief Lone Wolf, Enid street trolley, renegade sooners, actor Johnny Crawford who played "Mark McCain" on The Rifleman television show, and many more.

Lewis says Enid will be the pioneer city for a mural to be done nationally. He says his goal is to produce murals of selected cities from each state in the union.

The mural will be displayed at the Enid Public Library until September 23.
