This 12 x 18 foot mural, found in the new Sheboygan County Courthouse, was painted by a Professor G. Nordinger of Chicago in 1933. It depicts a fur trader, Jacques Vieux, exchanging cloth, hardware and trinkets with an Indian chief. The scene was the trading post of William Farnsworth once located near the old Ashby Bridge near today’s Esslingen Park. Nordinger once served as a portrait painter in the Court of Luxemburg and was a member of the Art Academy of Munich and the Ecole des Beaux Arts of Paris.​​​ After traveling around the county, it found a permanent home in 1986. Read the full story here.
