Robert Baden Powell created the Boy Scouts in England and 1907, bringing the idea to the east coast of America just three years later. Chicago Publisher, William D. Boyce, incorporated Boy Scouts of America on February 8, 1910. In 1912, the first Boy Scout troop in California was established in Lindsay, Troop #1.

California based artist, Josie Figueroa, using acrylic paint on Dibond aluminum composite, painted the 8 by 16 foot mural. The use of a sign material and framing system allows the mural to be relocated at any time. The mural depicts an actual Troop One outing in the Sierras in 1915. Today, the United States Boy Scouts has over a million members.
