Bucyrus is home to several murals by world-renowned artist Eric Grohe, most notably Great American Crossroads in Millennium Park at Washington Square and Liberty Remembers at 215 N Sandusky Street. Utilizing a dramatic trompe l’oeil technique and after months of meticulous research, the artist created a world within our walls, bringing the history of the community and the sacrifices of our citizens to life.
