Today, anyone driving through Thorndale will notice the mural painted on the east wall of the feed mill, facing the railroad track. In 1999, Dick and Trudy Nieuwland commissioned London artist, Fred Harrison, to paint a railroad scene as their way to help preserve the historical importance of the railway to the village of Thorndale. The rail system played an important role in the early development and growth of this little community. Many new homes are being built on country size lots, and many are calling Thorndale home while commuting to work in London or Woodstock.
