BRANSON, Mo.- The Empire District Electric Building is now the home of a 94-foot mural to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the penning of the Star Spangled Banner.

The muralist, Raine Clotfelter, has had this project in mind for over a year, though he has had his eye on this location for much longer.

Clotfelter and his wife Tricia started and finished the artwork within thirteen days.

Bob Sarver, a director of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 913, heard about the project from Clotfelter.

The ceremony included a performance from the Bretts singing the National Anthem, words from Pastor David Wagner and KRZK’s Greg Pyron, and a military procession from the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 913.

The mural key pieces include an eagle,  the Star Spangled Banner scribed on a scroll, and a sign welcoming everyone who passes by to Branson.
