A must see in Portsmouth..

A must see in Portsmouth.... and about the only thing to see in Portsmouth. A must to keep the floodwaters out, but if you came to see the river itself and the activity on it... read more

The flood wall murals is a local attraction. As you walk or drive past the murals they tell the story of times gone by. They show the proud history of this river town from the pioneer times to the industrial complex that built this city. If you visit Portsmouth Ohio this is a must see.

The murals on the Portsmouth flood walls depict the history of the town and life in general. Across the street from each panel, you can read the story of the painting. This is worth the drive as a destination - you will not be disappointed!

These beautiful paintings capture the rich history of this town and region. You can call a phone number and hear a recording about each mural. Take your time and admire the detail in each mural. You can view the murals by walking or by creeping along in your car. It's worth the time.

The detail in this mural is absolutely amazing! I have seen a couple other river wall murals but nothing else comes close to this. If you like history and/or art, this is a must see. Kudos to the City of Portsmouth. If nothing else a visit to see just this is well worth the trip.

Really interesting art work--each panel was a different style. Displayed chronologically. Go to the adjacent visitors center first to get their pamphlet about the murals.

Just an wonderful thing to have in your area. The artist is just Amazing. I have been to art gallery's where the art wasn't even close to this caliber. If you get the chance, see it before some idiots decide to graffiti over it.

I got the chance to view these recently. First time I had heard of flood wall painting. The murals are beautiful and full of detail. Reminded me of stars that had come from the Portsmouth area plus history that I either never learned or had forgotten long ago.
