Orphan Train Mural

The long term product of the Starting a New Life: Dowagiac’s Orphan Train Story will be a mural on the Pennsylvania Street side of the Dowagiac Post Office. Ruth Andrews is designing the mural and will lead the execution of the work. This will be a community-wide project and we welcome residents to help paint the mural. After the wall has been cleaned and prepared in early May, we will begin scheduling helpers. If you are interested in helping paint the mural, the museum will be setting a schedule. Please stop by the museum for an application and to discuss a schedule. Feel free to contact the museum at museum@dowagiac.org with questions.
