A 120-foot mural detailing the history of Longview was unveiled Tuesday along with the opening of a new apartment complex.

The mural project, “History of Longview,” was started in April and painted by six professional artists and 10 youth artists from area schools.

“I was born and raised in Longview and, as an artist, it was important for me to get involved and work with the children,” artist Celi Bothwell Hester said.

The completed mural spans the back of the Amberwood Place Apartments. Longview Councilman Richard Manley issued a proclamation Tuesday on behalf of the City Council and Mayor Jay Dean that May 6 will be “Amberwood Place Day” in Longview.
