CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — Downtown Central Point is getting a new look that pays tribute to the good old days.
Thursday, Central Point installed an 85’ by 20’ historic mural. The large vinyl photo is of Pine Street when it was first paved in 1911 and the sign now hangs on one of the remaining buildings from that era of the early 1900′s.
“I’m just proud to be able to get something like this in our town and to show people we’re a community, we care, we care about our history, we care about the town,” says Central Point Beautification Chairman Debbie Saxbury.
The 99-year old photo was given to Louis Ruth Photography and hours were spent enhancing it so it could be enlarged. It took 45 days from start to finish for the sign to be approved by the city and set up on the Cowley Building.
