Story Street

Artist: Tammy Hoppe, Mural 14, Completed: 1999, Restored 2005
Location: East wall, Country Boutique Inc. 304 First Ave.

In 1999, (before the Rock Rapids Mural society was born), the Corner Cafe building that stood on this corner was torn down.  A mural was designed by Tammy Hoppe and painted by her and volunteers.  This mural depidts a life-size scene on Story Street in the early 1900s (from the corner of South Story Street and South Second Avenue looking north).  The mural slowly succumbed to time and fell into disrepair until the Rock Rapids Mural society adopted it in 2005, inviting the original artist to resore this work of art.
