Perhaps one of the most interesting displays at the museum are these murals that provide a picture of a small town in the 1930's and '40's. Executed during that period by noted local artist Alice Stallknecht Wight. All of the people represented in the murals were residents of Chatham when Alice Stallknacht painted them. Paitings are owned by Chatham Historical Society, Chatham, MA. #stallknecht, #alicestallknecht, #muralbarn, #atwoodhouse, #chathamhistoricalsociety, #capecod

Black and white photo of the full wall mural of Alice Stallknecht's "The Circle Supper" 1935. This mural portrays the once-a-week supper to which all townspeople were invited. From Alice Stallknecht' "A church supper shows Christ asking the Blessing- at this moment all recognize that He is the Christ, the good in man.
