Another cool thing in Vicksburg
Aug 2021 • Friends
I thought the murals might be overrated because of some examples I’ve seen before. It’s a nice idea but not always well executed. Not this time, though! These are very well done, with a wide variety of scenes, and there is information to explain each one. There are other attractions, good restaurants, and easy parking in this area too.

Murals cheer up the downtown area
Jul 2021
These murals definitely add to the ambiance of the downtown Vicksburg area which needs a bit of cheering up! There was even a good parking area to be able to stop nearby to see them.

Parking was easy and the walk along was nice to see all the murals. Each panel tells a story of Vicksburg's history over the years..

Definitely worth stopping!!

Nice plaques below each to ID the situation

Our River Boat parked behind this levy wall, and we viewed the history of the town painted on on its inside wall. Nice composite of information!

From floodwall to art wall
Apr 2021
Architects like to say form follows function, and I like when something functional is made into an art form. That is the case of the river floodwall which is painted with over 30 murals.

Another "Don't Miss" in Vicksburg!
May 2021
The talent of these artists is awesome, and I learned many interesting facts about Vicksburg by reading what each mural represents. Give yourself at least half an hour to absorb this.

Depicting Vicksburg's historical significance
Mar 2021
The Vicksburg Riverfront Murals didn't exist the last time my wife and I visited Vicksburg, Mississippi. So add another interesting tourist attraction to the list of sites to see on your travel itinerary. It is a series of 32 murals painted on Mississippi River flood walls. Unveiled in 2002, they are intended to depict the city's historical significance as well as its envisioned future role in the region's commerce and culture. They show a timeline of Vicksburg history, including downtown Vicksburg in the days following the 1953 tornado, the steamboat Sprague during the roaring 1880s, ferry boats transporting train cars across the river and The Famous Teddy Bear Hunt. Artist Robert Dafford, who completed similar murals in Cincinnati, Ohio, Paducah, Kentucky, Portsmith, Ohio, and Maryville, Ohio, was commissioned to complete the first series of 12-feet by 20-feet panels along the flood wall facing Levee Street. In 2012, a 55-foot mural was commissioned to be painted on the Grove Street flood wall, across the street from the Levee Street murals. It is designed to be triangular in shape due to Grove Street's incline. It is a feature along the route of the annual 10K Run Thru History event and depicts a group of runners passing by areas of historical significance in Vicksburg.
