Pittston's downtown Heritage Mural was officially unveiled Wednesday night.

This is us, said Pittston Mayor Jason Klush as he touched the wall. This is who we are.

The mural covers the entire side of the Pittston Dental building and it depicts three stages of Pittston heritage, coal mining, garment industry and railroads.

Former Mayor Michael Lombardo, now on the city's redevelopment authority, said the project came to fruition because people worked together.

This site we‚??re standing on, not only the mural, I think is a reflection of the potential of what can happen when people focus on a goal an don‚??t let anything get in the way, Lombardo said.

It was designed by artist Dwight Kirkland of Black Leaf Studio in Mifflintown, and his partner, Michael Colley.

The dedication was held in conjunction with a ribbon cutting of the new, adjoining UFCW Credit Union building.
