Irrigation-themed murals designed to draw people in to Courtland

COURTLAND – A series of old gas tanks at the south entrance of Courtland went from an eyesore to a new attraction with the addition of murals featuring an irrigation theme.

The project is the first to establish Courtland’s identity as the “Irrigation Capitol of Kansas.”

Other murals are planned within city limits. Republic County (as well as Jewell and Smith counties) will be featured next summer during the Big Kansas Road Trip, and the murals will be an additional attraction during that event.
