The Maple City


When the first known settler of Monmouth (John B. Talbot) arrived, the territory was called “Maple City”. Fast forward to 2020, and Monmouth is still affectionately known as the Maple City. To pay homage to the town’s nickname, artist Larry Wiedman carved a series of maple leaves out of white oak taken from the demolition of the buildings razed to build Pattee Plaza on the Public Square. Each one is unique and sells for $150, and is ready to hang on any wall in your home or business. BCA members receive 10% off on any gift shop or gallery purchase.
