I am currently working on a montage mural project for the city of Ramona, California. It will be a historic mural based on images from the late 1800’s that I worked up as well as two historic photos I will base part of the mural on. These should all be completed on 2-1-16.
Ramona was founded around 1886 by land speculator Milton Santee. It was named after a novel by Helen Hunt Jackson about relationships between Mexicans and Indians. Santee sold 2 acres of land for $100 to Amos J. Verlaque, who built this building. It was the town’s first store and post office.
