Salisbury's historic mural on West Fisher Street was vandalized. Someone drew mustaches on some of the faces, to the disgust of some people who live nearby.

Most of the damage was cleaned up by Thursday morning, but some gray areas are still visible where the mustaches were drawn.

Salisbury Police tell My Fox Carolinas they are looking to see if surveillance video from area businesses will help them catch the culprits.

Charles Leslie was passing by the mural Thursday. He said, “I’m disgusted that somebody would do something like that.” Leslie went on to say, “It’s somebody else’s property, and they have no business messing with it.”

Salisbury native Catherine Miller said, “I think it’s horrible because I mean this mural represents downtown Salisbury.”

The mural titled “Crossroads: Past Into Present” shows Salisbury leaders and citizens from the past and present. The people in the mural are dressed in early 20th century costume. The mural is a bit of a tourist attraction downtown.

Dawn Calhoun was visiting from Winston-Salem Thursday. She said, “This seems to be a tourist type area, so we stopped to grab a quick picture.”

Janie Allen, Secretary of The Mural Preservation, Inc., a group which was formed to preserve the mural, said she was very disappointed to hear about the vandalism. Allen said, “I was just sick. I really was, but I’ll have to admit we’ve been extremely fortunate because it’s been there well over 25 years, and nothing like this has ever happened to it.”
