As I drove along Route 6 through Mt. Jewett on my way to the Kinzua Bridge, I was amazed at this beautiful, colorful mural on the side of a building. On my way back through I stopped to capture this amazing art. I had no idea how this beautiful mural found it’s way into such a small, rural town. Until I got home and did some research.
Route 6 is an interesting road across the northern part of Pennsylvania and runs through a lot of beautiful, small towns. The town of Mt. Jewett has a large Swedish heritage. They even have an annual Swedish Festival during the second week of August.
The mural was painted by the famous muralist Kong Ho. The mural is 3,4000 square feet and showcases the local heritage. It is definitely a wonder to set your eyes upon when visiting this little town.
