May 2008 - Cuba Missouri
We stopped in Cuba, MO on Route 66 on a cold, blustery spring day while driving to Branson. Everywhere you look there are murals.
The residents of Cuba, Missouri, celebrated the town’s 100th birthday in 2001 by creating the first of 16 murals, and each year, another one or two are added. Depicting everything from apple picking to the Civil War to an oversized soda fountain, Cuba has earned the nickname “Mural City.”
