The city of Maryville has commissioned an historic portrait of William Scott, first black mayor of Maryville, to add to the gallery at the Maryville Municipal Building.
Painted by Amy Campbell, the portrait will be unveiled in a public ceremony from 5 to p.m. Monday, Feb. 25, in the central foyer of the municipal building.
The portrait is eight feet high and four feet wide and matches the other existing historic portraits that hang in the space. Scott will be joining Sam Houston, Isaac Anderson, Sam Pride and General William McTeer. All were painted by Campbell. The Maryville Municipal Building is located at 400 W. Broadway.
