Wolcott’s Palace Theater Mural Rededicated


One of the more than 45 murals in Wayne County was rededicated over the weekend.

The town and village of Wolcott, the Wolcott Lions and Rotary clubs, the Wolcott Historical Society, and Mural Mania worked together on the mural installed on the Palace Theater. This 16′ x 32′ mural depicts several scenes of landmarks and the history of Wolcott and the surrounding area.

Mural Mania organizer, Mark De Cracker hosted the program, joined by speakers from across all elements of the mural’s successful rebuilding.

Lions Club member, Joe Gregg spoke of community, business, and service organization efforts to bring this mural back to health. The mural artists, Mark Williams, Breanne Dohn, and Bev Owen each shared their experiences and connections to working on this mural. Wolcott Historian Kara Chapin talked about the history of each of the mural’s panels. Mark took time to explain the stories behind many of the people and animals who appear in the mural, each of who have a significant connection to Wolcott or Mural Mania.

The Wayne County Bicentennial offered its congratulations to the Town and Village of Wolcott, Wolcott Lions Club, Wolcott Rotary, Wolcott Historical Society, and Mural Mania for restoring this piece of Wolcott History.
