The paintings on the wall itself were very good, but the informational kiosk scattered out along the walk gave a lot of very interesting history and background information related to the paintings. A couple of the kiosk were in need of repair, but all in all it was an interesting way to spend some time while in the area.

Hard to miss if you visit downtown Cape Girardeau. This is a very long sea wall that has been painted by local artist. You will walk along the east side on water street and read plaques that provide the history behind all the paintings. A must visit if you find yourself in Cape Girardeau, Mo. I-55 is only 1 mile...

The Missouri Wall of Fame serves it's purpose well. It keeps the Mississippi River from flooding the downtown Cape Girardeau area. This is located in a really cool part of the city. There are various shops and restaurants to enjoy, along with the old buildings. (Many have been totally refurbished, while keeping their original designs intact). The flood wall has... More

So what do you do when you are trying to revitalize a riverfront downtown? A wall. The Cape is clearly trying to do something with a downtown that has seen better days..this wall is a part of it,

I truly enjoy walking along the river front and reading the history as depicted on the wall. I hope more will be added.
