Swanton artist Nannette Sturtevant painted two murals for the new Fulton County Museum in Wauseon.

Working with the Fulton County history timeline the museum starts with the Stone Age, and Nannette painted a seven foot tall Neanderthal Woman on a 3’ x 7’ panel, depicting how they looked. She also painted an 8.5’ x 7.5’ mural showing what the Plank Road looked like as the pioneers made their way through the Great Black Swamp in Fulton County.

The new facility is located at the Fulton County Museum and Welcome Center, 8848 State Route 108. Hours will be Monday through Saturday 10 am – 4 pm, Sunday 12 pm – 4 pm.
