Painted by Stan Herd in 1992, this mural stands as a great tribute to the Cherokee Strip Land Rush. The mural was painted in commemoration of the Cherokee people and the Cherokee Strip Run. A well-known artist and land muralist, Stan Herd hails from Lawrence, Kansas.
The Cherokee Strip Mural is 13' by 52' and "portrays two Cherokee representing the deep Cherokee heritage; cattle herd to represent the Cowboys leasing and renting the Cherokee Strip Land; a surveyor representing the mapping of the land for pioneer settlement; and families, horses, and wagons in a cloud of dust to represent the start of the Cherokee Strip Run."
Address: north side of a downtown business in the 100 block of North Summit
