DESTREHAN, La. (WGNO) – A large mural is almost complete outside Cashio’s Food Villa in Destrehan. The mural depicts 300 years of St. Charles Parish history.

The 70-foot long depiction of history was created by Hans Geist a Louisiana local who has also done murals for Houma.

We spoke with Parish President V.J. St. Pierre who hopes the mural will encourage conversations between parents and children about the area’s history.

The mural is composed of 17 panels fixed onto the building. It is detailed work and it’s clear St. Pierre has spent a lot of time these last few months in the sun.

The unveiling of the mural is scheduled for some time next week.
