Colorful murals on Hoisington Main Street in Kansas

Hoisington Main Street Murals

Three murals grace the Wilson State Bank building on Main Street of Hoisington. Facing Main Street, “Morning Reflection” showcases nearby Cheyenne Bottoms. On the south side of the bank building facing 2nd Street, “Over the Kansas Rainbow” depicts an oil drilling rig in a typical Barton County oilfield scene. “Helping Hands during Harvest" also faces 2nd Street. This mural was painted from a photo taken as wheat harvest was completed by family and friends of Ed Stoss after his death. Mr. Stoss was a Hoisington farmer who also drove a school bus for many years.

Olivia Lowry, a graduate of Hoisington High School, created all three murals in 2015 while she was a student at Fort Hays State University. Ms. Lowery is currently an art director in Chicago.

Hoisington Main Street Murals are found along the Wetlands and Wildlife National Scenic Byway. Along the byway, you'll encounter landscapes and communities shaped by the powerful forces of motion and change. You're entering a region formed by ancient and ongoing geological movement, a land of stunning bird migrations, of wild winds, and weather, and of richly layered human history. The road moves through radiant wetlands exploding with wildlife; prairie vistas with immense blue skies; and seven rural communities shaped by nature and the entrepreneurial spirit. The inland salt marshes that anchor this drive, Cheyenne Bottoms and Quivira National Wildlife Refuge, are international birders treasures nestled in the heart of America and the Central Flyway. Plan your other stops along the Wetlands and Wildlife National Scenic Byway here.
