According to "Otsego Lake Pomona Grange: The History of Otsego County Granges" published in 1972 by Otsego County Pomona Grange, the front curtain with the Otsego Lake scene was created for a performance of the "dramatic association" which was in practice from 1896-1904 and again in the 1930s. A date for the mural was not specified. On reverse of photograph is handwritten: TABLE & CHAIRS W/ PAINTING OF LAKE OTSEGO/ PIERSTOWN, NY/GRANGE #793/2000/ ANDY BAUGNET.
