Ryan Sawmill in 1888, Sumner, WA

18061225915_207d7c2b1c_oIn 1990, artist Paul Cislo painted three murals on walls in downtown Sumner to commemorate Sumner’s Centennial which occurred in 1991. This Cislo mural on Main Street is titled Ryan Sawmill in 1888, (Sumner, WA) and illustrates a sawmill and loggers on Elhi Hill. George Ryan, who owned the mill, was an important person in Sumner’s history.

The Sumner Mural Restoration Project is raising funds to restore all three murals. This summer Trackside Pizza will move into the building.

I stopped here after a Holiday BBQ. While snapping my photos my dear husband wandered into an antique store and purchased two chairs, so this was an expensive stop for me!

Windmill Bistro

This evening I gathered with friends at the Windmill Bistro in Sumner. We shared a meal catered by Mama Stortini’s and had a splendid speaker. The Bistro is situated in the historic Sandland House and has a very welcoming feel to it. The extra good news is that I can use the Windmill Gardens as a new place of the day some other day and have another meal at the Bistro! I’m already looking forward to it 🙂

I went back in 2/14 and took a few more photos, including the windmill!
