It’s been said that Chewton’s past is more than a tad colourful.
Now the town’s famed local historian Elaine Appleton has enhanced this reputation by having a significant slice of that history depicted in full technicolor glory on a mural created by friend and artist Anne Rittman.
Big, bright and bold the newly finished mural visually tells the story of Chewton’s settlement from pre-European Indigenous times through gold rush days and settlement. 
The mural took Campbells Creek-based Anne Rittman three months to create and is being unveiled with fanfare and VIPs this Sunday at 2.30pm in Elaine’s Eureka Street front yard where the resident history buff intends to share it with everyone and anyone. Read more in today’s Mail.
