Geocache Description:

The purpose of this cache is to find a building that has been painted to make it look like it is a different building.

This mural has fascinated me ever since I first noticed it. It is painted on the side of a building. According to the Charleston Convention & Visitors Bureau, this building located at One Bridge Place in Charleston, WV, was “Built in 1890 for a wholesale grocery company and recently renovated as an office building.  Especially noteworthy is the environmental mural on the side of the building facing the Southside Bridge. This mural, incorporating the actual windows in the building, was conceived and painted by Bart Davies, a Fine Arts graduate of Penn State. It took two years to complete.”

Is this mural unique, or are there others around the world? This cache is not the same as Murals Across America or Murals Around the World. Specifically, this mural must make the wall it is painted on look like another structure. For instance, the example used in Murals Across America has a building in the background, but it is not pretending to be the building itself, so it could not be counted as a find for this cache.

To properly claim this cache as a find, you must post a photo of yourself and your GPS, with a mural that makes the building look like it is a different structure. Post the coordinates and city where it can be seen in person. If you have any information about the mural, please include that in your description.

Please apply the usual locationless cache rules - one find per cacher, each find can be logged only once, and the mural can not be logged as a find for another cache.
