Long Description:

This was the sixth mural done by the Manteca Mural Society. Its nick name is "cow-muh-nity mural".

The location of this mural was once the place of "The Creamery", Manteca's first business. This dairy was so successful that in 1911 it received its own railroad stop. The stop was supposed to be called Monteca (Spanish for cream) but a railroad-misprint turned it into Manteca (Spanish for lard). The error was never fixed and for the last 100 years, our town has been called "Lard."
