“wonderfully cultural art experience”
This wonderful artwork welcomes visitors and tourists who stroll into the downtown area via the Union Street overpass that leads to the Columbia River. The underpass project restored access to the river from the historic downtown business district of The Dalles and was completed in September of 2003. These famous moments in history have been magnificently illustrated by renowned northwest artists. This is truly a cultural and educational experience for all ages. Every mural features a legend which tells the story of its illustrated historic event. The Dalles, Oregon has a rich cultural history. You will find murals honoring the original Native Americans who have lived in this area for over 10,000 years, the Lewis and Clark Expedition which passed through The Dalles during their historic journey from St. Louis to the Pacific Ocean, and murals honoring the pioneers who forged a new life here at the end of The Oregon Trail. Several of the murals have audio narration. You may purchase a key for a small fee at The Dalles Chamber of Commerce office to activate the “talking box” located at each mural to tell the story as recorded by historians, Native Americans, or the artist that created them.
