An old photo shows a mural painted by Gladys Wheat, who inherited the house in 1937 and lived there until the mid-1970s. Hank and Katy Ottinger discovered the mural when they removed a thin bamboo wall covering. Much of the wall was later removed during a kitchen renovation and the remaining sections of the mural have been covered with sheet rock and insulation.
