“Murals”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

There is a lot of beauty in these murals and a lot of work to make them so real. You can feel the cotton plantations slaves on one and all the different pictures make you feel in that part of history.

“interesting history lessons”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

I didn't count how many murals were done, but each one had a bronze plaque in front of it with facts/history lesson on that particular mural. They were so huge and very well done and located along the Yazoo River front.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

These murals are very beautiful but the rest of the riverfront/downtown area is a ghost town. The buildings downtown are in beautiful condition but sadly, many are vacant. Wanted to visit the Old Depot Museum, but got there at closing time. Sad to see such a nice area without much for tourists.

“Citizens action.”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

My recent trip along the delta served as indication to me of the community spirit of the men and women in this part of the USA in promoting their town to visitors who drop by.
The outstanding murals of Vicksburg depicting the history of the town are a work of art converting what would be a very ugly barrage are reported to have cost $17000 each and payed for by local business and community groups and present the history of the area .
There longevity is assured by a special plastic overfinish to guard against graffitti and weather.
Well worth the 30 minutes required to check them all out.

“Color on the Riverfront”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Nice history piece to hide an ugly flood wall. They were interesting and added to the feel of the area, but not worth a special trip to see them.
