Visit Paducah's thriving riverfront and take a self-guided tour of portraits from Paducah's past depicting Paducah's rich history in more than 50 life-sized panoramic murals by renowned artist Robert Dafford and the Dafford Murals Team.  One of America's most prolific mural artists, Dafford's work may also be seen in France, Belgium, and England.

Each mural along the floodwall has the story and history that inspired it.  The first twenty panels from Jefferson Street to Broadway feature historic scenes in chronological order from the early 1880s to the 1940s.  The next section from Broadway to Kentucky Avenue displays Paducah’s colorful river history, and is directly across the street from the River Discovery Center and The Seamen's Church Institute Center for Maritime Education.  Panels between Water Street, Kentucky Avenue, and Washington Street focus on the period of unprecedented growth in Paducah during construction of the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant in the early 1950s.  Additional murals in front of The Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Center for the Performing Arts depict popular events and notable buildings and businesses in Paducah.
