Title: George Washington Mural
Artist(s): Erich Preis
Year of Creation: Circa 2010-2011
(NOTE: This mural, and other murals at this location, appear to have been removed in association with departure of the Spirit of Huntington Art Center, which had temporarily operated out of this building. The Art Center relocated in November 2013 to the former South Huntington Public Library building at 2 Melville Rd., Huntington Station. As this and other murals had been painted on plywood panels, it is possible that they are still extant at locations unknown.)
Medium: Paint on plywood panels

Hamlet: Huntington Village
Street/Site Location: Southeast corner of Main St. and Park Ave. (site of the original Platt's Tavern)
