Monroe Postcard Mural
You can find “Greetings from Monroe, Louisiana!” if you go to the Northeast Louisiana Children’s Museum on Walnut Street in Monroe. You’ll see the postcard mural from their parking lot! It features the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo, CenturyLink’s Headquarters, the University of Louisiana at Monroe, the Masur Museum, a P-40 Warhawk representing the Chennault Aviation and Military Museum, a nod to Delta Airlines who started here, and a glass bottle Coca-Cola with roses representing the Biedenharn Museum and Gardens. Behind the “Monroe” you’ll see the downtown skyline with the Endom Bridge.
West Monroe Postcard Mural
Find the “Greetings from West Monroe, Louisiana” postcard on the side of Miss Kay’s Sweets and Eats located on Antique Alley in West Monroe. When you walk onto the patio at the restaurant, just go toward the side on Trenton Street and walk behind that wall. If you turn on to Trenton Street from Louisville Road, you’ll see the mural when you drive past! This painting features the West Monroe Farmer’s Market, Antique Alley, the Ike Hamilton Expo Center, Restoration Park, Smiles Park inside Kiroli Park, and West Monroe High School.
