Mural Monday – Duck Lake Historical

During our July holiday, we drove past the town of Duck Lake. Needing a break, we stopped at the Visitor’s Centre and Museum. Outside the building is this striking mural commemorating the Battle of Duck Lake.

Several sign boards tell the story of the battle along with a historical map of the area.

On a trip to the province in 2007, we explored the town of Duck Lake and its murals. You can find photos of those on my old mural blog HERE.
