Harvey Peck painted several murals around Humboldt. With the city planning to sell its old city hall, some want to find a way to preserve his work.

A call has been sounded to protect and preserve some of Humboldt’s most beloved artistic treasures.

Harvey Peck, now 94, has spent a lifetime beautifying Humboldt, including adorning buildings with expansive and intricate murals.

You can find them in both old and new city halls, Estrellita Restaurant, the United Methodist Church and several other locations.
