I love seeing the flood wall and murals every time I visit Paducah. It's amazing to see it when there is flooding and the floodgates are closed. The river rises SO HIGH. It's crazy. The murals are beautiful and portray the history of the area quite well. Worth a stop.

A nice place to take a stroll back through history. The murals are professionally done and depict the various eras of Paducah.

This wall is very well done. You can read about each mural. It is a nice short walk. I have even seem schools visit it. The area shopping is quaint and sometimes you can take a carriage ride.

The floodwall murals are interesting the first time you visit. It's not necessarily something that I'd go back to see, but I'm glad I saw it once. If you're in the area, they're worth stopping to see. The walk is pleasant, and downtown Paducah is always nice.

You can drive by these murals of Paducah history but you shouldn't! Take a long walk so you can read the plaques that accompany each mural. How many are there? I'm not sure but they cover every aspect of local history in beautiful fashion. Well worth the time!

The murals are gorgeous and show a lot of Paducah history. Plaques describe the mural. The murals are easy to see from your car but do get out to really sense the history.

The Floodwall murals are impressive. They are so well done and detailed. Plaques tell the history of each picture. I took photos of each one so that I could study them in more detail.
