Visible from Main Street on the front of the building, “The Pioneer Cabin” mural depicts an 1800s cabin interior scene. The two female figures represent a young girl singing for the sitting cowboy character with her mother directing her to the right. To the far right a bird has landed on the windowsill observing them. Above them on the wall is a Native American bull skull decorated with turquoise and hawk feathers. This iconic natural sculpture symbolizes strength and courage within many tribes.
