The Verlaque Store Mural is dedicated to the first business establishment in Ramona built in 1883 and run by Amos Verlaque and later by his brother Jeff. It was a stage stop, general store, and post office and offered a place for local folks to hang out, chat, buy goods, and receive mail.
Artist: Rik Erickson
The artist, Rik Erickson, painted what might be found in the Pioneer Store from the late 1800’s to 1911.
