New mural honors local farmers and community of Haven

Downtown Haven now features a new mural that pays homage to our local farmers and farming community. It depicts the farming methods used in 1886, when Haven was founded, and carries through to mid-century methods, and finally to our modern-day methods of farming.
The quote on the upper right side of the mural sums it all up…Farmers, supporting local communities while feeding the world!
The mural artist is Heather Byers from Wichita. She was chosen because of her enormous talent and the fact that she has a different style than that of Brady Scott, who was the amazing artist of the Veterans mural located on the south side of the Hardware Haven building. Our goal is to create great murals using a variety of styles.
Two major fundraisers were held over the year were a Chili feed and raffle held in January, along with a hamburger feed during the Haven city-wide garage sales.  This mural could not have been possible without the support of the following and we wish to thank them…
Erik Lange and the Mid-Kansas Co-op staff
Ken Brown and Haven Steel
Haven Chamber of Commerce
Iron Gates Insurance
Haven LaCadena Club
James and Charlene Schlickau
Ronnie and Tami Smith
And last but certainly not least thank you to all our friends and family who contributed and supported our fundraisers.
