These are beautiful murals depicting Cincinnati during the ages and well worth a visit. They are just below the Roebling bridge.

If you happen to be in Covington, it's worth having a look at the riverside murals. Located along the Ohio river across from downtown Cincinnati, these murals depict the history, life, and culture of the people of Covington. Highly recommended on a nice sunny day.

My brother took me along to see these riverside murals after a lovely ramble through some of the streets in the old local neighbourhood. A very memorable ramble, stopping to check out the murals and local history before we crossed over the bridge from Covington...More

Saw these from the Cincinnati side of the Roebling Bridge. Wanted to walk across the bridge anyway and being able to see these murals up close was a treat. Very nicely done!

The murals tell the history of life along the river through the centuries. From the buffalo crossing, to a ferry, to pontoon bridge, to the suspension bridge. A wonderful blend of art and history.

The murals are beautiful. And they are worth viewing up close for a quick 15 minute walk. They didn’t hold the attention of my kids (8 and 5 years old), but it was still fun.
