Wrangell log painted at City Park
April 18, 2019
City park is a popular spot for locals and tourists to enjoy the outdoors. The park is also the site of some artwork that is equally popular amongst locals and tourists. A large log, with the town's name carved into its side, sits on the park's beach. According to Wrangell resident and photographer Charity Hommel, a group of carvers and chainsaw artists decided to etch "Wrangell" into the log. They did not ask for anybody's permission to do so, she said, but the log has become a staple of sites to see around town.
"Folks have come to enjoy using it as a backdrop for photos," Hommel said.
