Local deli first business in six states to get hand-painted mural

Friday, June 2, 2006

Chaney's Deli in Harmony is the first business along U. S. 40 to receive a mural that was hand-painted by Clay County resident Ron Glasscock commemorating the bicentennial of the National Road. Standing around the first mural completed is from left to right: Brook Williams, Debbie Searcy, Teresa Chaney, owner of the deli; Jim Hicks, past president of the Clay County Historical Society; Joe Jarzen, executive director of the Indiana National Road Association; Ken Turner, member of the Clay County Historical Society; Brianna Maher, Logan Chaney and Linda Chaney.

The Indiana National Road Association plans to provide numerous locations along the National Road with the hand-painted murals.

The bicentennial celebrates the 200th year of the National Road, the 824-mile portion of U.S. 40 that stretches along six states, Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. Numerous activities are planned for the bicentennial celebration, visit www.indiananationalroad.org for more information.
