Pioneers Central Office building in Yachats was selected by Travel Oregon and the Oregon Cultural Trust as one of seven hand-painted murals throughout Oregon. Other mural locations include: Forest Grove, The Dalles, Prineville, Ontario, Oakridge and Roseburg.
The Oregon Mural Trail project was created around the “Oregon, Only Slightly Exaggerated” animation video. This video can be seen on YouTube
The idea behind the trail was to bring the artwork to life and inspire Oregonians and visiting explorers to get outside and explore the natural wonders of each destination, generate a sense of community pride, enhance economic impacts and contribute to local arts and culture initiatives.
If you haven’t seen the mural in person yet, it’s a must see. The art is truly magnificent and was completely hand-painted using spray paint. Find the mural on Hwy 101 next to Yachats Brewing.

Thank you, Travel Oregon, Oregon Cultural Trust and Oregon Coast Visitors Association, for selecting Yachats as one of your destinations!
