Heartland

4409 Bull Rapids Road, Woodburn, IN

A large buffalo bull was slain by the rapids on the Maumee River north of Woodburn. Thereafter the place has been known as Bull Rapids. At that time there was a small settlement but now only a Church going by that name still stands. We also have Bull Rapids Road (where the mural will be placed). Water reference: East of Woodburn is the Blue Cast Springs-ACRES Land Trust that offers walking trails. It was the original site of Blue Cast Sanitarium selling mineral water sold world-wide. Along with agriculture, Woodburn residents have many flower gardens. The mural committee was very much in favor of including flowers in the mural.
