This is like an outdoor art & history museum. Beautifully done scenes on the floodwall. Walk or drive, your choice, and take it at any pace. Well worth a visit if you’re nearby.

The flood wall murals are awesome. They have taken many years to paint. A remarkable history of the town. A must see if you are in the area. Easy drive by view or a nice walking tour.

If you are in the area or if you are a fan of large public artwork, these murals are worth a stop in the once-significant town of Portsmouth. The murals are easy to access. Parking is free. There's not a whole lot else in Portsmouth,...More
