Prairie Tillers Mural
Brick & Paint
The Prairie Tiller mural was painted by Caryl Yasko first in 1980 and then again in 2004. It was created as a tribute to the Kettle Moraine with elements of the moraine depicted. The figures on the right depict three time periods and their people: the Native Americans of the area, the early settlers and the people of the present. The figures on the left represent future generations. The large circle in the center represents a mill wheel and waterpower, essential to the development of the area. The original painting was lost to deterioration in the brick wall. In 2004 the wall was resurfaced and the mural was repainted.
