A mural highlighting the city of Grapevine’s history and culture was unveiled Jan. 7 at Harvest Hall.

Designed by Haylee Ryan, a local Grapevine artist, the mural is divided into seven sections. Each section’s vignette showcases several aspects of Grapevine, including its industrial age, its wineries and food options, its entertainment industry and its railroads.

The last piece of the mural paid homage to Mayor William D. Tate and his father. Tate is Grapevine’s longest-serving mayor. His father also served as mayor. The last portion of the mural was a surprise to Tate, who saw it for the first time Jan. 7.

“I can relate to almost all of the murals that represent this community,” Tate said.

Harvest Hall is part of the Grapevine Main development in the downtown area. The European-style food hall is one of three components to the $125 million project that includes Hotel Vin, a boutique hotel. According to Grapevine Main representatives, the three-part project is expected to bring in $400 million in investment and create at least 1,500 new jobs.


Restaurants inside Harvest Hall feature seven different styles of cuisine. Rescheduled multiple times due to construction delays, the latest opening date for the food hall is Jan. 25.
