A millennium mural, created by local artist Brian McLachlan is located on the side of the Pharmasave building. This breathtaking mural will take you back to the days when mining was the main industry in Nelson.

Local artist Dan Morslander and 16 students painted four murals on the wall and unveiled them as a gift to Nelson.

Salmo:
A rock project began in 1990 when quarry owner Iris Lamb was looking for a way to rejuvenate stone sales. That was when the Stone Masonry Training Institute opened. Stone murals artist Charlotte Plaindin and student masons used the rock by number technique to place the different coloured stones. Take a short walking tour around Salmo and visit these 6 unique flagstone murals.
