Waldport civic leaders wanted a grand way to celebrate the city’s founding 100 years ago in a timeless way, and it appears they’ve done just that. Newport art teacher and muralist Casey McEneny has finished the project that depicts Waldport’s historic roots which includes honoring Native Americans who settled and enjoyed the Alsea Bay region long before the white man. McEneny’s historic masterpiece is to be dedicated on Saturday, November 19th, 12:30pm at the site of its new home; the wall of the Samaritan Clinic Building, between the C&K Market and The Flounder on the west side of Highway 101, aka Arrow Street.
McEneny worked his entire Summer off on the mural, which he lovingly created in a space under the bleacher building at Waldport High School. The City of Waldport and the Port of Alsea Bay provided partial funding for the project. By the way, an opportunity to become a donor yourself is still available. Contact Waldport City Hall or the Port of Alsea with your generous donation to what will become an iconic symbol of Walport for years to come.
