This 32 foot beauty is a tribute to the New York Candy Store. This turn of the century confectioner later evolved into the New York Store and featured house furnishings, china, glassware and confections. Gary Anderson and his team of Letterheads won the honour of creating the first mural completed.

The "Belvidere Seed Company" pays homage to Boone County's agricultural heritage. This blended beauty was created right across the street from the New York Candy Store and there was lots of hijinks going on between the Noel Weber crew and the Anderson bunch across the street. Thanks for this wonderful mural Noel!

A team led by Bill Hueg gets the applause for the creation of this 1900's streetscape. This was the largest mural at an average height of 35 feet and a whooping 80 feet long. The artwork for this gorgeous work was actually projected on the wall at night while an army of Letterheads traced the image. Ain't it pretty?

A locally manufacured bicycle known as "The Lady Diamond," was recreated in this 10-by-20 foot by Steve Estes and his wacky crew of Letterheads. The National Sewing Machine Company, a manufacturing giant in Belvidere for more than 75 years before closing in the early 1960s.

Built in 1842, The American House was one of the most well-known hotels in northern Illinois. The hotel also served as a stagecoach stop on the Chicago-Galena route. Elaine Wallis of Niagara Falls, Ontario, and her enthusiastic team get the credit for this 60 foot landmark.
