EASTON — A new Frederick Douglass mural was officially unveiled on Sept. 4, with community organizers bringing the public art to life with a large ceremony filled with live music and guest speakers.

The 27 foot-by-9-foot mural, on the Rails-to-Trails near the historic neighborhood of The Hill, is a big draw for Easton, a town with some public art but none so large and historic. And the mural joins other local public commemorations of Douglass — a native of Talbot County — including the county courthouse statue of the famed abolitionist and the new Frederick Douglass Park on the Tuckahoe.
