Downtown Point Pleasant

 I have walked the streets of downtown Point Pleasant a thousand times.
The shops and dining here are magnificent.
But I have never before seen this...

This mural, that appears to be quite old, depicting the downtown area of yesteryear.
Downtown has changed, but there are a few stores that are still here,

The Lumber Store

and
Point Pleasant Hardware Co.
Much further away from the stores, there is a beautiful Church.






Is this the train?


I fell in love with this mural!
We found it when we were looking for the race boats, back when my legs worked.
It is across from the train station, which is a great spot for it...
welcoming people to this beautiful town!
