Greetings from McAllen!

Photos and blurb by Eryn Reddell Wingert

The McAllen Heritage Center in downtown McAllen boasts a new, vibrant, postcard-worthy mural. Located on the south wall of the Center’s building, the mural is based on a vintage postcard modernized to showcase McAllen’s current City Hall, the Heritage Center, palm trees, and the city’s official bird, the green jay. 

The McAllen Heritage Center celebrated the reveal of the new mural in the spring of 2022 with folkloric dancers, live musicians, artists, and food vendors. To witness the mural in person, the center is located at 301 S. Main Street; parking is available in the back of the building.
