We live in Paducah but love going downtown to walk and eat at one of the many nice local restaurants. It's always a treat and very safe.

The mural is beautiful, massive, amazing. What a fabulous way to beautify a necessary wall. Walk through the wall to see the river, watch the boats, and listen to some local music. Take a lawn chair.

The murals tell the history of Paducah and Indians working together on the river. It has the "Ole Iron Horse locomotive" outside of the wall. Very impressive of the depiction of the history of a river town on the river.

It shows the history of Paducah and the United States on HUGH murals! It's a must see if you are in the area. There are lots of murals to see. And the downtown is a nice area in itself...
