The finished mural covers the wall in the foyer, which is 25 feet long. This is where folks wait to have a seat to have breakfast in this world famous pancake house. The slider images below show the full length of the 25ft mural.

Mural Description

    Maggie Valley is a town that sparks your imagination with memorial images. The Ghost Town theme park, the Stomping Ground's mountain music, dinner theater, fine dining, shopping for crafts, ski slopes, connecting with the Blue Ridge Parkway, motorcycles, bear & elk and camping by Jonathan Creek are unforgettable. All of these images are a part of a new mural commissioned by Roy Milling, the new owner of Joey's Pancake House. The mural artist who has accepted the challenge is Doreyl Ammons Cain of the Appalachian Mural Trail. The mural covers the wall in the foyer, which is 25 feet long. This is where folks wait to have a seat to have breakfast in this world famous pancake house.

    "The idea is for folks who are waiting to have a fun experience as they find all kinds of interesting images of Maggie Valley in the art mural!" says Roy Milling.

    The glassed in foyer has spotlights on the mural so passing visitors can see the mural through the glass. The mural and it's dedication to the Appalachian Mural Trail is intended to draw more folks into Maggie Valley from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

    "This is an exciting art project for me," says Doreyl Ammons Cain. "I have been to Ghost Town, danced at the Stomping Ground and tasted fudge at Maggie's Mountaineer Crafts, things I'll always remember. My best efforts have been put into this tribute to Maggie Valley!"
Mural Location: 4309 Soco Road

I love what you folks are doing. Several years ago we went to Exeter California to see their Mural trail. We spent hours in this little town looking at the murals and trying to find the hidden objects in each. We talked with the towns people, had lunch, shopped in the shops. I love the mural trails, and yours is going to be one of the best. Thanks for keeping us in the loop.

Art is everywhere in Asheville! This gorgeous mural of Dolly Parton by Gus Cutty is the newest mural you'll see in town. Gus created the mural with spray paint in 3 days. See it for yourself at Beauty Parade on Haywood Rd in West Asheville.

Love your mural artwork! The local references, the depiction of marvelous, beautiful, and colorful nature - landscapes, birds, animals, butterflies, and glorious flowers - invites close study and is very engaging!
