The mural is located on one-way loop Downtown Loop, at its intersection with westbound Main Street, on the east side of Grafitti's Sports Pub, located at 912 Main Street, Stevens Point, Wisconsin 54481.

This is the sixth mural completed in the Stevens Point "Windows to the Past" murals project. I could find no information to confirm the mural's name or what the scenes depict. However, I did discover the building is listed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places, as the Mathias Mitchell Public Square-Main St. H.D. The building's historic name is "Ossowski Saloon and Glinski Building" -- so I'm presuming the murals depict late-19th century activities at the Ossowski Saloon (built in 1890).

The mural is one in a series of murals included in the Stevens Point Historic Murals Walk.

What a fabulous building!
