Traveling through the interior of Florida offers a glimpse into a culture that is not only agricultural, but one that also maintains strong historical ties. This photograph is a detail of a mural on the side of the original 1926 high school gymnasium (now the Okeechobee Freshman Campus). Providing a pictorial view of early settlers on the north shore of Lake Okeechobee, it also depicts wildlife and native plants. Though this beautiful depiction is only a couple of blocks off the main road, it is likely missed by most travelers...their loss! 610 SW 2nd Ave, Okeechobee, FL
