Main Street 1888

“Main Street” was the first mural completed in downtown Pine Bluff and is an accurate representation of Main Street in the year 1888. Robert Dafford, an internationally known artist, painted the mural in the summer of 1992. He included two prominent figures from that time period, Judge J.W. Bocage and Wiley Jones, who recorded much of Pine Bluff’s history and became one of the leading businessmen in that era, respectively. The mural was refurbished in 2013 and now has a park in front of it along with a new sign thanks to the Pine Bluff Chamber and Young Professionals.
