This bronze marker is located on the west side of the Locust Street Mural - a large paint on brick mural. The text reads:

Locust Street
This mural was chosen based on an 1890 postcard of Locust Street in its prime. The street scene depicts the original buildings in downtown Chillicothe with the activity of the day. Many of the buildings illustrated in the murals of Chillicothe are still in use today. As you travel the streets of downtown Chillicothe, let your minds eye take you to a time of horse & carriage, railroad cars & friendly passerby.
