Mural Celebrates Louisburg History

Story by Anna Laurel

LOUISBURG, NC (WTVD) — Student Julius Shumpert and his Louisburg College Art Teacher, Will Hinton, created this 12′ X 16′ mural on the side of a building in downtown Louisburg.

It started with a Minority Artist Grant through the Louisburg Historical District Commission with the help of Louisburg College’s president. They started drawing, and then painting in the month of June and unveiled it to the town for July 4.

Added new copy….

Louisburg College says the mural is a depiction of The Louisburg Opera House with actual Louisburg residents walking down the sidewalk in 1936.
