Washington’s History Told Through Murals

Created in 1989 in honor of Washington State’s centennial celebration, the Toppenish Murals have grown to include over 75 paintings commemorating important events, historical figures, and everyday life in rural Washington between 1840 and 1940.

After the first mural was completed, a Mural Society was formed and the organization has completed more than 75 additional murals. On the first Saturday in June, the city hosts a “Mural-In-A-Day” event, where artists gather to complete an entire wall-sized masterpiece in a day. Hundreds of people come to watch the paint dry.
