Columbus County Mural Celebrates Bees, Butterflies

The next time you’re passing through Whiteville in Columbus County, be sure to check out the new mural at the intersection of Madison and Frazier streets.

The Columbus County Beekeepers Association received a community grant from Brunswick Electric to commission the mural, painted by local artist Bess Hinson Taylor, as part of the Whiteville Butterfly Trail. Although largely depicting bees and flowers, the mural also features a butterfly as a fellow celebrated pollinator.

“We love investing in our communities and seeing projects like this come to life,” said Brunswick Electric Manager of Member Engagement and Communications Brookes Versaggi. “This beautiful mural will be enjoyed by Whiteville residents, visitors and our employees who live and work in the area. It’s a homerun for everyone, and we’re proud that Brunswick Electric could play a part in making that happen.”
