Come to Cape and walk the Wall of Fame. Pictures and plaques tell the story of years past along the Mississippi River and also make great photo backdrops. If the flood gates are open you can walk along the river, watch the barges and take in a breathtaking view of the Emerson Bridge.

As we walked along the sidewalk by the train tracks we looked and the wall of fame and we had not realized how many Missourians had made history.

This is a must see if you are a history buff, or even if you're not. The history of the Mississippi at Cape Girardeau shown through paintings and historic reading on and along the flood wall.

See the history of Missouri in beautiful murals on the flood wall in historic downtown Cape Girardeau, MO. What a great way to decorate a concrete flood wall. One end shows the historic events. The other shows famous Missourians. A written description is displayed at each section to tell about the murals. Walk through the open flood gates to see... More

If you get the chance be sure and check the wall out it is a great scene to look at, and the gallery is a great place to go in and see as well.

I must say, this is impressive...they seem to keep adding new art all the time. They have done a wonderful job depicting Missouri history. Bring you kids...this is a great learning tool to see history as art. Whoever painted these did a wonderful job...thanks....

It was very neat to see. It is only a short walk to view the whole thing. The only problem was that some of the information signs were faded out and unreadable. I would still recommend people to stop and view this landmark.

I visited this site with my husband and our family last November. The weather was a tad chilly for our taste but the Wall was amazing. I am a history buff and love art. This combined both of my favorite things. It was very informative and the murals were beautifully painted. Definitely worth a visit!

We have been there several times. The wall is very well done and the plaques in front of each picture is very informative.

The flat flood wall murals were so lifelike that they appeared to be 3 dimensional. Really exceptional quality. Having driven here from Paducah, the two cities flood wall murals were of totally different quality. Excellent descriptions on plaques in from of each mural. VERY nicely done !!
