Downtown Mural Project

The City of Troy: Our People, Our Places, Our Stories mural was an initiative of Reunion Troy, a local project for ALABAMA200 statewide bicentennial celebration. The Committee coordinated a series of activities & events from 2017-2019 that celebrated the people, places and stories of Troy, Alabama. The volunteer committee includes educators, historians, students, local business and community leaders of various generations. The mural is a compilation of the past, present and perhaps, even future leaders, that have significantly impacted our city at various points in history.

The mural’s design was created by local artist, Troy native and recent Troy University graduate, Alexandria McLendon. The project was coordinated by McLendon’s high school art teacher and mentor, Pam Smith. Much of the research and images were compiled by Nicklaus Chrysson, Troy native and current Troy University student, with significant influence by Troy author and historian, William Rice.

The Downtown Mural Project began in 1996 when the Downtown Troy Revitalization committee of the Pike County Chamber of Commerce approached local artist and art teacher, Pam Smith, about bringing new life to what was then a declining downtown area. Property owners donated their exterior walls as canvases for Mrs. Smith’s art students at Charles Henderson High School. Today, the downtown murals are a popular attraction in our thriving and growing downtown.

We would love for you to share your stories and your images of the murals using
