We’re Going to Paint the Town!

The Historic Punta Gorda Historical Mural Society where history, artwork and community are here for your enjoyment.

The PGHMS is a non-profit, 501c(3) organization whose objectives include the Revitalization, Preservation and Economic Enhancement of our community through the painting of murals that depict the rich history of our area.

We have no paid employees and the business of the PGHMS is conducted by a volunteer Board of Directors and Advisors.

On Friday, August 13, 2004, Hurricane Charley roared ashore in Punta Gorda with winds in excess of 160 mph destroying among other things, half of the 20 murals that had been painted since 1995.

Since then we have also lost 2 additional murals to building resurfacing. We are in the process of re-painting these lost murals.

In 2009, we re-painted 2 Murals, “Movie Memories” at the Event Center, and “School Marms on the Bay” at Fisherman’s Village, and added 1 new mural, “The Churches of Sacred Heart” at Sacred Heart Church. This leaves us with only 4 of the lost Murals to be reconstructed.

It is still our short-term goal to reconstruct all of the lost murals within the next few years. You can follow our progress by visiting the PGHMS website at

Renderings of all 26 murals are on display at the Punta Gorda City Hall and the Charlotte County Events and Conference Center.
