1. A Trophy View Marker
Inscription.

This unique 2-sided mural illustrates Livingston County's rich connection with the outdoors. Take the time to explore the different elements that combine to make this mural native to this area. The blue heron, wild turkey and bobcat blend in with their painted background of the Grand River and surrounding landscape. The bridge portrayed in the background was a major key in the success of the Pony Express as mail was transported to St. Joseph on the Hannibal & St. Joseph Railroad that crossed that very bridge.
