From the D W Correll Museum Website:
"The museum consists of two buildings. The main building has a beautiful, painted mural on the outside of the structure. The award winning artist, Lance Hunter, was commissioned to paint the mural that honours the late D.W. Correll, the museum's benefactor and a beloved Catoosa resident. The brightly coloured, attention getting mural, is 8 feet tall and 72 feet wide. It shows a glimpse of the interesting collection of artefacts inside the museum.

Displays of rocks, gems and minerals. Inside the main building, you will see a rare collection of rocks, gems, and minerals displayed from around the world.
