Historical Firehouse Mural.

This mural is located at the site of Ramona’s original firehouse at 222 Ninth St. This is the 13th Ramona mural sponsored by the Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project and is dedicated to the fire brigades who have served the community since the origin of the first firehouse in the early 1950s. The mural is based on Engine No. 2, a 750 GPM Mack, triple-combination pumper purchased about the same time the firehouse was built. The engine was restored by the Poway Firemen’s Association in the 1970s and in the 1990s purchased by Ramona resident Darrell Beck, author of “On Memory’s Back Trail.” Darrell states in his book that he had “on many occasions used the engine’s heavy front bumber to knock down fence posts…often dragging the barbwire behind it.

The main goal of the Ramona H.E.A.R.T. Murals Project is to create a reason for passing tourists to STOP and enjoy Ramona’s beauty, charm, character, and heritage.

The Verlaque Pioneer Store Mural

This 11-panel mural montage titled “Verlaque Pioneer Store” stands on the east wall of businessman Peter Bidegain’s Reds, Whites and Brews at 629 Main St. It is dedicated to Ramona’s first business, built in 1883 and operated by Amos Verlaque and later by his brother Jeff. The Pioneer Store was a stage stop, general store, and post office as well as a place for residents to hang out, chat, buy goods, and receive mail.

The mural above was designed to spice up a boring, white wall in a spin room.
The idea was to have a girl riding her bike on a winding road across the US and Europe to visit famous landmarks.
