DescriptionSettled by Pennsylvanians in the early 1820s, Bucyrus (bu-SIGH-rus) was named “bu-” for its beauty, and for Cyrus, founder of the Persian Empire. Artist Eric Grohe has dressed up the downtown area with two murals. In the downtown square, a part of the city's history can be viewed in an impressive 4,000-square-foot mural entitled “Great American Crossroad”; it depicts how the same square looked in years past. The mural is complemented by an ornamental fountain, plantings, commemorative bricks and period lighting. Just one block north, a second mural called “Liberty Remembers” portrays Lady Liberty cradling a dying soldier wrapped in the nation's flag. Grohe also painted “The Light” mural in St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, 130 S. Walnut St., to commemorate the church’s 100th anniversary in 2002.
