Pembroke Heritage Murals

Pembroke Heritage Murals
Pembroke Heritage Murals...celebrates this area's rich character and heritage through large-scale paintings on an ever-increasing number of our city's downtown walls, colourfully portraying a bygone era for the enjoyment of today's generation.
 
Our story unfolds as you walk through the streets of Pembroke: in 1613 Samuel de Champlain was the first European to visit the site which by the turn of the 20th century had grown into a vigorous logging community: in 1884 Pembroke became the first community in Canada to have commercial electric street lighting and an electrically lighted town hall. As the town grew, the landscapes and lifestyles changed--our murals are an illustrated record of these changing panoramas.
 
Since the first five murals were painted in 1990, Pembroke Heritage Murals has overseen the creation of more than thirty murals by both local and national artists. Their styles are as varied as the wealth of historical source material they've researched and been influenced by. During the summer, you are likely to see murals in progress and perhaps talk to the artists about their work.
