Frescoes in Old Town Temecula

Old Town Temecula

Old Town Temecula was established back in the mid 1800's and some thirty years later when the California railroad came through, locals created the 1st bank and old town Temecula sprang up all around it. Today, Old Town is a thriving business district with it's main businesses housed in it's antiquities. The community is committed to restoring more of it's past while encouraging new development  to ensure the area remains robust in activities and services while  serving the many citizens tourists drawn to Old Town. 

Frescoes of Old Town

I visited Old Town Temecula yesterday late day and having been there a few times over the last couple years, I recognized that I would have to look around a while to be able to capture some new interesting photos to add to my collection from my previous visits. I actually found a number of recently completed community improvements including the new Civic Center but as I was getting ready to leave, 5 small little sheds that had been set up in a vacant area. I realized that while I do recall seeing these sheds before, this time they had frescoes painted on them.

In this wonderful old town setting, as I approached the frescoes, I was taken with what a cleaver way to enhance these little sheds to reflect the times gone by. I have no information on the artist but whoever painted these, provided a very nice interpretative recreation of what Old Town Temecula might have provided in the way of local shops back when.

I visit quite a number of Old Town areas in communities and I love they way they each do things slightly different to make the area really stand out and to be significant in representing the history of the area. And this small collection of frescoes in Old Town Temecula certainly has it's own unique flavor.
