These four artistic panels welcome people as they drive into the Valley Junction historic district along Railroad Avenue. One side of each panel displays historically accurate photo from Valley Junction, while the other side offers a somewhat literal representation of the area's railroad history. The architectural design reflects elements common to railroads.
