Mural - Michigan Landing

Part of the Michigan Landing mural on Willingdon Ave. Michigan Landing was used by the Michigan-Puget Sound Logging Company
for log sorting until 1918. In 1927 the area was turned into a community playground, and renamed Willingdon Beach.
The beach trail is the old rail bed this locomotive rode on.

  2. This mural looks more like a painting than a typical mural. One of the primary railroad lines in our region has become the "Olympic Discovery Trail" here. All our rail lines are gone but many of the spurs became conventional roadways.
