Molly Must's Marvelous Marlinton Mural

1st Avenue at 8th Street, Marlinton, WV

This colorful mural is by artist Molly Must. The artist explains that it was "inspired by several local historical writings, particularly those of G.D. McNeill, author of The Last Forest, and also the writings and poetry of his daughter Louise McNeill."

On the upper left is a quote: "This is the place it starts beyond the Allegheny, where the primordial river parts the hill."

Unfortunately I was not able to get the entire mural in one photo because of a tree. You can see other details of this artwork on the artist's website.
