and Mural Winston's Dream

G. Winston Dobbins Memorial Park and Mural Winston's Dream Dedicated June 14, 2007 This site is more than a landmark in history. It is a community victory! In April of 2006 discarded furniture, old tires, scrap metal, and assorted rubbish filled this spot. Concerned citizens took the first step in transforming this gargabe pit into an area of which the community could be proud. Win Dobbins shared two things: a postcard, circa 1910 of this very spot, and a pamphlet of a community that created and displayed murals. Less than a year later a seemingly insurmountable project began...to make a park and have a mural pained and mounted on the old trolley abutment. Nay-sayers claimed it was a waste of time and money, and never could come to fruition. The word was spread, and volunteers donated materials and equipment, and contributed literally thousands of hours of raking, planting, leveling, cutting, hauling, drilling...whatever it took. The result...a beautiful historical park for the enjoyment of both citizens and visitors. A modern community came together to celebrate the rich history of Lyons. As said, it is truly a community victory. Mural Mania wishes to thank the following volunteers for their faithful and generous contributions to this site.
