Snow Hill, MD – The Mayor and Council of Snow Hill are excited to announce the return of the Legacy Mural. The iconic image that greeted travelers heading into Snow Hill for over thirty years will make its reappearance this week! Through a collaborative partnership between the Town of Snow Hill and private property owners Dr. William and Christine Plack, and with funding from the Maryland State Art Council, this Snow Hill emblem will resume its rightful place in the heart of our Town!

The Legacy Icon, a prior Town logo, has become an important symbol in defining the quaint lifestyle experienced in Snow Hill. This image captures the essence of Snow Hill by incorporating elements most strongly represented in and around the Town. The lush treescape along the water bank speaks to our geography, heritage and historic resilience as one of the first Royal Ports settled in America. Paying tribute to the Town’s function as the Worcester County Seat, the Worcester County Circuit Court building’s copula is a prominent feature in the image as well.

This image has become a focal point of our Downtown Shopping District. It acts as a welcome beacon to visitors and is a staple in the lives of the community members. Weddings, engagements, graduations, and other milestones are commemorated through pictures with the Legacy Mural as the backdrop.

The Legacy Mural was originally painted in the 1980s by Wally Makuchal Sr., based on the Town’s logo designed by Selbyville Signs. After Wally Makuchal Sr.’s death, his son Wally Makuchal Jr. took over maintenance of the mural, repainting it in the early 2000s. Wally Makuchal Jr. is scheduled to begin the reinstallation of the mural beginning as soon as Friday evening. The first phase in repainting the mural is establishing the outline, which will be done by projecting the larger-than-life image on the wall during evening hours. Please be advised that Willow Street will be closed to traffic beginning at dusk during this time.
