Mural of Welch #3

 

A portable bandstand the Welch Cornet Band ready to perform, the town’s trusty pump and the W.J. Gambill Groceries, Hardware and Undertaking store are pictured in this mural of scenes from the early days of Welch, Oklahoma. The mural is part of a series located in the Welch State Bank which are open for viewing by the public. Bank President Charles Stoner commissioned the work in 1985 to re-vitalize the small community of Welch by appealing to the pride and sense of history of its residents. The art works were created by Dr. Nicholas Calcagno, who was chairman of the Art Department and a Humanities instructor at Northeast Oklahoma A & M College in Miami at the time.
