When a rundown, 1917 building became the home of the American Hop* Museum, little thought was given to its exterior.

The addition of trompe l’oeil architecture, murals and text dignified the facade and provided a visual history of the local Hop industry.

*Hops are used to add spice and bitterness to beer.
