Boone County Bicentennial Committee to Present "Treasures Of Boone County" Mural Piece to River Communities

October 24, 2022 – The Boone County Bicentennial Committee is pleased to present to the River Communities their portion of the “Treasures of Boone County” mural during the Hartsburg Grand Open House on Sunday, October 30, 2022, at 4:00PM in the Events Center at Hartsburg Grand, 30 S. 2nd Street, Hartsburg, Mo.

The “Treasures of Boone County” mural was on display at the Boone County History and Culture Center from March 2020 through January 2021. After the Bicentennial Year drew to a close, the mural in its entirety was taken down so the individual pieces could be displayed throughout the County. Each community has received its own unique piece to display in a public place of its choosing. Additionally, they have received a framed print of the complete mural and a key identifying the points of pride of each community captured in the artwork. 

For those who were unable to view the mural in its entirety, the video “Treasures of Boone County,” as well as other videos from the Bicentennial Celebration year, can be watched at  

This video highlights the creation of “Treasures of Boone County,” a mural created by local artist and educator Stacy Self (WildysWorld) with collaboration from citizens across Boone County. The mural is like a large puzzle, its eight pieces representing distinct geographic sections of Boone County. Together, the pieces form the shape of Boone County and depict 200 years of diverse and colorful history.
