This is history in art form. The Floodwall Mural is a beautiful depiction of Paducah’s history. While you’re there, walk through the wall and take in the expanse of the rivers.

Portrays the history of Paducah through artful scenes of the past. Well lit at nighttime. Nice walk through memory lane. Nice sidewalks to enjoy it from.

Great walk, Great history! Tells the story of this historic town! We are amazed on how good the painting are! Don't miss seeing them late in the afternoon when they are lit by the sun!

It is well worth the time to go see these murals. You can drive by to see them, but it much better to take a stroll and examine them in more detail.

A must see! The murals are so realistic. The attention to detail is amazing! This is one of those sights that you can visit repeatedly, and see a new detail each time! A must see when you are in Paducah

Lovely works of Art. Interesting how they could use the Floodwall as a Tourist Attraction. As an Art enthusiast, I was very impressed. It brings life to the City.

While driving into Paducah...decided to head first to the flood wall murals. How amazing!! Loved it so much on our way out of town after a long week end stay, we went back to take pictures. Paducah is a beautiful and wonderful get away.
