UPDATE: The MHS Murals Saved
The Mamaroneck Historical Society is seeking the support of Mamaroneck Chamber of Commerce in their effort to remove the James Fenimore Cooper Murals from Mamaroneck High School walls and reinstall them at public sites in our community.
Public art generates excitement, leading to increased foot traffic, which benefits surrounding businesses. In 1934, students envisioned an installation of public art to enhance the school cafeteria. After seven years of planning, fundraising and painting the eight murals were installed. The murals focus on the life and novels of Mamaroneck resident James Fenimore Cooper. The Historical Society encourages you to visit their website to learn more about the history of these murals as well as how you can help save these works of art.
