  1. The Brick Store Museum in Kennebunk (117 Main St., http://www.brickstoremuseum.org) has more information about this mural in its archives. The museum was founded by the same woman who did the mural.

    • Hi Tracy, thanks for letting us know about this connection. We’ll try to get in touch with the museum.
