Mural in the Stephens City Walmart

Last week I stopped at the large Walmart near Stephens City and noticed that there is a mural at the entrance where the motorized carts sit.

The mural shows the drive-in theater, farmland, distant mountains, and the Welcome sign. Here are photos I took a couple of years ago of the Family Drive-in and that sign. The reason there’s a covered wagon on the sign is that the town was once known for constructing good quality wagons.


  1. The top mural is so pleasant to look at

  2. Beautiful mural! Take care, enjoy your day!

  3. We refer to that style of wagon as a Conestogo wagon and my wife’s ancestors arrived in southern Ontario in such a conveyance. Our local expressway is named the Conestogo Parkway, the Conestogo River runs through here and there is a small town named Conestogo. It features greatly in the heritage of this region.

    1. Indeed! At least four of them have murals. I’d like to see one in our local store.

  5. What a pretty mural with a rural landscape. Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Linda.

  6. Good for Walmart there to paint a local mural. And having a drive-in movie is definitely a plus!

  7. Intersting mural, indeed. I love car cinema too. Another round of MosaicMonday in the middle of May... and I'm looking forward to your contribution again. More pictures this week that tell the story of your surroundings, of nature, of your everyday life. Pictures that also tell a story.

    Thank you for your participation at MM. Have a good time, best wishes from Heidrun
