Historians and art enthusiasts will be thrilled by the 10 hand-painted murals adorning the foyer walls. Scenes of Mount Vernon, the city of Savannah's seascape, and the Pony Express are poised to greet and astonish all who enter this wonderful home.
While the artist's name remains unknown, these wall murals were painted during the Works Progress Administration—a project created and funded under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1935. In most cases, two and three single-wall panels are painted to harmonize multiple walls, thus creating a visual masterpiece. These murals are among the largest and most impressive collection of hand-painted wall murals from this long-bygone era.
