The Cracker Trail Cattle Drive is shown in this 165-foot-by-35-foot mural. Commissioned by the Lake Placid Mural Society in 1994, it's one of several that have been repainted over the years to maintain the original luster to help keep downtown Lake Placid as a vital tourist and commercial area.

Another unfinished mural, also on a house and across from the “card game,” shows an old west stagecoach robbery, faded on a yellow ochre background.
