I have seen the wall many times and take visitors to see it when they come to town. The wall not only gives a summary of the history of Cape and shows you famous people from Missouri. While there enjoy views of the Mississippi River.

It was nice to see that the graffiti was kept to a minimum and the walk was clean. Very relaxing walk I liked the information that was given on the wall.
