“the history of portsmouth by mural.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

these murals are hard to picture without visiting and really getting a vision from your own perspective. they begin with the beginning of portsmouth, shows the flood, sports people from portsmouth. they are really outstanding with the people looking so lifelike and the scenes in each one with beatutiful colors, dress depicting each era, it really beautifys what otherwise was an old ugly concrete wall.

“Breath taking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

When you come into town, head toward the river you will find the floodwalls, there is not only excellant pictures on the north side and documents history quite well, but on the south side is the name of famous people who have visited the area, very interesting to say the least,

Really pretty murals, historic, the best part of town. These are photo ops ready to happen, very nice. Other towns should do this also.
