Murals connect community

Thank you, Merrick Bochart and the Haisler family, who make murals on Main Street possible. We do live in a breathtakingly beautiful valley, but I believe that the most important characteristic of any community is the people that live there. Merrick has a talent of quietly and whimsically linking our two greatest assets in a positive public visual statement: Haines’ spectacular natural beauty and the unique diversity of its residents who help create a special feeling that is simply "Haines, Alaska."
