Vernon Heritage Murals https://www.tourismvernon.com/en/see-and-do/Historic-Murals.aspx
You can take a virtual walking tour of the murals here. You can also download a pdf of the murals’ descriptions here, or download the map and mini-descriptors here.
The murals of Vernon are known around the world for their depiction of the history of our town over the years. They portray the history, culture, scenery, and folklore that made Vernon what it is today. These 29 works of art cover several points in time from cowboys to geishas and as well as important locations, people, and events in our history.
The murals were painted by local artists as a multi-year collaborative effort of youth employment, revitalization, and heritage conservation strategies.

Caravan Farm Theatre Events
There is no theatre building – just the great outdoors. Productions have been staged in nearly every corner of the farm – in a field, in the pines, in the barn or the riding ring. The shows range from classics like Shakespeare and Brecht, original works like Horseplay and Cowboy King. Annual productions include The Halloween Walk of Terror, a Winter one-act sleigh ride show, and in Summer, a full length musical.
