Paducah's floodwall displays several panels depicting the history of the town. The art work is beautiful and gives visitors a bird's eye view of the town through out the years.

These are the most wonderful larger than life paintings. I was totally impressed. They are continuously being painted so they never look bad. Must see if you are in Paducah.

We were pleasantly surprised at how informative and beautiful the murals are. Strolling along the riverfront is beautiful with so many barges and tugboats
