Save MHS Murals

The James Fenimore Cooper murals that have been hanging on the walls of Mamaroneck High School since 1941 are in the way of approved construction at the school. The Mamaroneck Historical Society believes the community should not lose this valuable asset. The goal is to remove the eight murals from the walls of the high school and reinstall them in the Larchmont Mamaroneck community. They are hoping to raise $175,000 through this fundraiser before construction is scheduled to begin on April 1, 2022. All donations go towards the removal and restoration of the murals and work related to this effort.

 

The GoFundMe organizers say: “The murals were the result of the community coming together in 1934 to design, raise funds, and commission these massive paintings that have been seen by thousands of students over the past 81 years. This is our opportunity to come together as a community once again and support the effort to save the murals.”
