Lakeland is known as "The City of Murals" for the many unique murals throughout town that depict life in early Lakeland. Two new murals have just been completed, making a total 25 Milltown Murals. Three murals are done in sepia, dipicting historical photographs. All the murals are in a five-block radius, except for one, so it is easily walked. Plan 1-2 hours to view our murals, take pictures and eat lunch. This is something to enjoy in a leisurely manner.
