Fifth History Center Mural

Unveiled, Completing Cycle

Young Felix Palmer of Cooperstown mimics the pose he took for the photo that became the basis of the fifth of five murals for the Dietz Street side of the Oneonta History Center, unveiled this afternoon. The photo was taken when he was 7; next week, he turns 13. Also depicted in the mural are Felix’ mom, Angelica, and Gary Aney, Jordanville, a Farmers’ Museum docent who appears as David Wilber himself.   The mural’s subject is Wilber National Bank, one of the History Center building’s occupants over the 150-year history of the first brick building in Oneonta’s downtown. At left is artist Carol Mandigo, who created the murals with the help of a NYSCA grant under the sponsorship of the Greater Oneonta Historical Society.  Murals already completed are of Laskaris’ candy store, Gallin’s Jewelry, Brown Hardware and Joann Dress Shop.  Wilber National Bank merged into Community Bank five years ago,  (Jim Kevlin/
