Library to display Enid history mural

ENID, Okla. — Beginning Friday, Public Library of Enid and Garfield County will display a mural depicting various images of Enid’s history.

The mural will contain 30 images from the time of the Cherokee Strip Land Run in 1893, until the mid-1900s. The mural is 7 feet, 6 inches by 10 feet, 6 inches and is designed in the shape of the current city of Enid boundaries. Some images will include the first Enid jail, Lincoln School, Chief Lone Wolf, Enid street trolley, renegade sooners and actor Johnny Crawford, aka Mark McCain.

A reception will be 5 p.m. Friday to introduce the artist and unveil the mural. The event is open to the public.

The mural will be displayed at the library Sept. 23.
