Learn all about the history of the area, from local celebrities to Civil War. You can do a drive by, but to read the info in front of the murals, walk along the sidewalk and stretch those legs! It is a pleasant walk!

We enjoyed this morning walk along the Ohio and viewing the history of Paducah in murals. It provides a welcoming break from a hectic pace of travel. Beautiful views along the river walk. It is wheelchair assessable.

The murals are well done, with plaques for each. This is a flood wall, with interesting engineering. The murals are in roughly time series order, and there looks to be room to expand with more.

Wonderful walk to see the murals. Absolutely wonderful! Every picture tells a story. And the train is an added bonus.

Had a great walk along the river enjoying these murals on the flood wall. Great idea in making a bleak wall into a work of art.

This is really street art at its best and sets out the history of Paducah over recent years. Makes excellent use of the flood wall.
