More Ashland Murals - The Community of Life

The following post is part of a series of murals we viewed in August of 2014 in Ashland, Wisconsin.

Last but not least is the mural at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center located 2.5 miles west of Ashland on Hwy 2.  The Community of Life mural weaves together the history of the people of the area and their interaction with the land and the wildlife.

The first floor of the visitor center has a permanent exhibit about the same topic, and the second floor has changing exhibits and a viewing platform with a great view of the trail system.

Back on the ground I searched the pond edge for hidden secrets and found some frogs.

That's it for the Ashland murals I photographed.  There are at least 7 more, I didn't want to give them all away!  Northern Wisconsin is a beautiful area to visit, I'm sure we'll get back up there again this year.


  1. Superb Murals, they woul dkeep me going for weeks on Monday Mural

  2. We really enjoyed Northern Wisconsin and I can't believe we missed these murals. We were so busy in Bayfield and at the National Seashore that we didn't give Ashland enough time. Did I miss the Native Americans in this mural of the people of the area or are they not there?
