T The City of Murals

Throughout town of Whitehall

When you enter the small community of Whitehall, your attention is immediately drawn to a giant mural on the side of a building at the junc- tion of the two main streets in the town. The 9' x 28' mural depicts Lewis and Clark's Corps of Discovery pulling boats upstream on the Jefferson River. An excerpt from Capt. Lewis' journal is in the lower corner. As you drive through the town, more of these murals pop into view. Currently there are ten gracing the sides of buildings in the town--all depicting scenes from the journey of the

Corps of Discovery. Two more are planned by summer of 2002. The Whitehall Chamber of Commerce organized the mural project in 1999 funded by over $17,000 in grants and local con- tributions. The first mural was painted by local residents Kit Mather and Michelle Tebay. The rest were done by many of the local residents who painted the base colors while Mather completed the detail. The wall space and even the paint and materials were donated by the building owners. All of the murals depict actual activities or events that took place in the Jefferson Valley when the Corps passed through the area in 1805 and 1806. Mather did extensive research of the Corps of Discovery journals prior to painting the murals.

Montana Trivia

The “richest hill on earth” has given up over twenty-one billion pounds of cop- per, ninety million ounces of silver, ninety million pounds of molybdenum, and three million ounces of gold. The veins of copper at Butte extended near- ly a mile down. Over 70 percent of Montana’s mineral wealth is concen- trated in Silver Bow County.


When you visit Whitehall you can pick up a pub- lication printed by the local newspaper which pro- vides detailed information on each mural and shows you where to find it. The publication is available at most of the area businesses and is free.
