This was very unique. Enjoyed the murals and a walk on the riverfront. Did not imagine it would have such interesting history since we are not from Kentucky. If you’re in Paducah, make sure to see this.

This is a living work of art undergoing revision and continuing restoration. It tells the history of Paducah.

murals have been painted on the floodwalls to give some relief and depict Paducahs past,eg the confluence of its two rivers creating its important river activities , also was an important railway town amongst other things.

The murals are so beautiful. If you are in Paducah, this is a must stop. You can see the murals and enjoy the Riverwalk at the same time.

This mural display gave highlights of the history of Paducah. It is a creative way to make the flood wall a point of interest. I enjoyed the artists interpretation of major events in Paducah from the founding to the present day.

A must see, It shows and tells you a part of the areas history. The artwork is amazing. You can also relax awhile on a bench on the river and watch the boats go by.

Learn all about the history of the area, from local celebrities to Civil War. You can do a drive by, but to read the info in front of the murals, walk along the sidewalk and stretch those legs! It is a pleasant walk!

We enjoyed this morning walk along the Ohio and viewing the history of Paducah in murals. It provides a welcoming break from a hectic pace of travel. Beautiful views along the river walk. It is wheelchair assessable.
