Murals of Main Street Hendersonville, NC

 

Five murals depicting Main Street, Hendersonville, NC in 1890, 1906, 1916 and 1934 were painted by William Owen Jones in 1949 on the walls of Dale’s Drive-In Restaurant at 711 Greenville Highway, Hendersonville, NC.  When the building was demolished, these murals were saved and stored for many years by Stuart I. Rubin.  Mr. Rubin donated them to the Henderson County Genealogical & Historical Society in December, 2000.  After extensive renovation of the murals and construction of a wall for display, the murals were installed in the second floor Gallery of the Society.
