This Mural was created by artist, Pierre Hardy on the north wall of the H & R Feed & Pet Supplies building in 1988. In this mural, the action takes place in the lumberyard of the Hartley Saw Mill. It is springtime, the time of year when Farmers are busy repairing winter damages to their houses and barns.

This Mural originally graced the hardware store on this site and was created in 1990 by Cathy McGuire. The border features alternating patterns of quilt squares and historic farm scenes.
