The paintings

The wall is full of history and displayed for everyone to see as they go to the river walk. There was much history of this town and you can tell they are proud to share it.

No trip to Paducah would be complete without touring these murals along the Ohio in downtown. They are well done and portray the complete history of the city.

The murals along the flood wall with the bronze plaques below each mural provide a good look at the history of Paducah. It's worth visiting each mural along the wall.

Make sure to stop and see these beautiful murals all along the flood wall. The're is even a little sign with each one to explain the history with it. It's free too, and they light them all up at night.

These murals are just stunning! Each one is unique and beautifully done - everything looks so real! Such a wonderful way to show pride and history of the town and area! They are such an asset to Paducah and the visitors that come here! Thank for having them.

These murals were all beautiful. Be sure to walk by them for some more fun in this very "arty" town, Paducah.

Must see when in the area. I took a picture of every mural and plaque. We were there early Sunday morning and the downtown area looked like a place we should of visited the night before. Would like to see it again at night.
