This oversize mural presents facts and legends from the history of the Sherbrooke region. This scene is purely fictional.
The foreground features the First Nations pulling back the existing wall like a theatre curtain. Most of these "extras" symbolize the succession of personalities, facts, and legends across several periods of our history, long before Sherbrooke or even Hyatt’s Mill (name of the first village).
The characters are assembled on the banks of the strategic Saint-Francis River, right in front of what has come to be a symbol of our region: the solitary pine.
