Murals of Whitewood

Whitewood’s murals have won acclaim for the way they recall the early days in the west. The gigantic Market Day mural located at the intersection of 3rd Ave. and Lalonde St. replicates an actual photograph of Whitewood from 1895. Even more amazing is that the mural was painted over a 3 week period entirely by untrained volunteers, under the guidance of Janet Blackstock, as a millennium project. This mural has drawn attention from right across the country and has been noted as being one of the best in the province. Whitewood has four other murals that need to be seen: an early day harvest scene, a view of the Pipestone Valley as seen by the French Counts, a fancy ball in Whitewood organized by the French Counts and an aboriginal scene in recognition of the area’s native heritage.
