More about this marker. This mural replaced the former "Welcome to Hamilton" mural at the same location. It shows the influence of Missouri Star Quilt Company's expansion on the small town between 2013 and 2020. The company now owns the buildings on that block and apparently had the mural replaced when they renovated the block. This is not a criticism of MSQC as they have done much to boost the economy of this small town and put it on the tourist map.
