Mural at the Port Orchard Library

Mural at the Port Orchard LibraryThe mural on the Port Orchard Library wall is strategically placed at the town’s transit hub. In 1990, Port Orchard’s centennial, Seattle muralist Eric Grohe was commissioned to paint a scene depicting the town’s history. At one end, a seafaring man stands at the helm of a ship; at the other, his wife and child anxiously await his return. Smaller pictures depict the town’s agriculture and industry through the years.
