H.G. Hotchkiss Peppermint Mural
Artist: Dawn Jordan July 2009 Mural #7
In this mural Dawn Jordan depicts the "essence" of the business operations which
at one time produced the world famous Hotchkiss Peppermint Oil. Included are
scenes of workers harvesting a peppermint field, a distillery for processing the
essential oil, and a horse-drawn cart transporting the extracted peppermint oil for
bottling at the Hotchkiss Building in Lyons, New York.
Lyons and adjacent Wayne County communities flourished amidst the commercial
activity emanating from the Hotchkiss headquarters on the banks of the historic
Erie Canal. The H.G. Hotchkiss International Prize Medal Essential Oil Company
contributed much to the local economy and surely paid many a Wayne County
farmer''s mortgage. Proclaimed the purest oil in the world by German scientists
during the 1800''s, Hiram Hotchkiss I became known as the Peppermint King of the
World and Lyons, the Peppermint Capital.
As you view and enjoy the H. G. Hotchkiss Peppermint Mural, take notice of the
cobalt blue peppermint bottle with the prize medals on the label and the four
generations of Hotchkiss family members who ran the business for 149 years.
Look carefully and you will see Mark De Cracker and Noel Dobbins, creators of Mural
Mania, illustrated as

mint farmers, with Mark''s daughter, Hannah, in the fields.
"Peppermint Patty" Alena is pictured in the packet boat. The mural makes the history
of this important Lyons industry come alive!
