First City Council

Punta Gorda is a waterfront city on the Gulf of Mexico between Fort Myers and Sarasota.  It was incorporated in 1887.  Punta Gorda is a city of murals.  This one is at the City Hall Annex.  The mural depicts the first members of the City Council and is taken from an old photograph.

 This mural was first painted in 2001 by Charles Peck.  After the wall suffered significant deterioration over the years, it was torn down and rebuilt.  Peck came back and repainted the mural in 2016.

Good thing Charles Peck could repaint this mural after all those years. Good to honor the past.
