pictures of West Artist.


this is a picture of all of the mayors up until that time..pretty cool.





Some of the buildings and business's are still here. Snookhouse Black Smith building with all of the tools of the trade and more are still there.
The one building with the 2 aluminum roof is still here. It became the movie theater and then closed sometime in the 70's. The owner is supposed to have leased or sold the building to the city but no one has done anything with it yet. Except for putting up a new roof..It's a great building and think it would make a great little dinner theater.
The paintings are all from original pictures taken in the 1800's..Also the picture of the 2 trains crashing is a true event ..It's called the Crash at Crush. Think you can google it..pretty interesting. ok..have more pictures to post..enjoy.





































The dresses were wedding dresses of some of the ladies in West. The sewing is so perfect.

A very worthy art exhibit! It's so great when artists paint their home town and surroundings.
