Courtland Pride Club mural in Kansas

Courtland Pride Club

Located at 324 Liberty Street, Courtland, Kansas. An excerpt from the Courtland History book reads -
"The Courtland Mural, which adorns the north side of the Community Building and faces the banks, had its beginning as an idea presented to the Courtland Community Pride Club by Tim Leaf, Pike Valley Art Instructor and Courtland resident. The PRIDE Club voted unanimously to support the project and local merchants and residents donated money towards the mural in order to sponsor a particular scene or item they would like to see on the mural.
Work on the mural began in the spring of 1984 and was completed by October of the same year. Many Pike Valley students, from elementary to high school helped paint the mural under the direction of Tim Leaf, but the two students who worked on the mural from start to finish were Stacy Nondorf and Kevin Bergstrom.
The design of the mural was based on the idea of a postcard coming to life. With the background being contained in a frame shaped like the State of Kansas, the horizon portrays the Courtland skyline with items important to Courtland popping out and extending beyond the frame.
On the wall are 3 metal stars, the center one of which was worked into the mural so that it is between the words Courtland and Kansas. That star is also where Courtland is in relation to the state."
