Street View Murals

streetviewmurals1Over the past decade Barbourville has become the home for beautiful murals that depict the history and culture of Appalachia and its people.  Historical scenes from the Battle of Barbourville have been incorporated into the Battle of Barbourville Civil War Interpretive Park, located at the intersection of Daniel Boone Drive and Cumberland Avenue.  A few steps away at the corner of Knox and College Streets, you will see a delightful mural that displays our fine mountain heritage of quilting.  Continue on Knox Street to Liberty Street and you will find unique fabric murals, one of the original Union National Bank on Knox Street; the other of Daniel Boone himself.  As you continue toward the visitor center on High Street and walk or drive toward N. Main, be sure to look to your left to see our newest mural, which portrays this section of N. Main as it was back in the late 1800’s.
