Paducah Floodwall Murals Paducah KY Paducah's Historic Main Street

Paducah’s Floodwall Murals

PADUCAH, KY – These beautiful, magical-3D murals, painted by muralists Dafford, Roe and others, turned a dull-grey concrete wall into one of the best art displays in the United States located along the Mighty Ohio River in one of America’s best small towns, Paducah, KY.

time-lapse video featuring Paducah’s floodwall murals

The murals span three city blocks in the heart of downtown. The actual floodwall is 12.5 miles long built after the flood of 1937.

The murals are flawlessly maintained that have bronze interpretive-panels at the foot of each painting that tell the history for that particular time.

Today the painted floodwall is Kentucky’s most popular tourist attraction located a few mile east of I-24 – a must see when passing through.

The IC 2-8-2  1518 Mikado steam locomotive that sits along the floodwall is the only one in existance today, donated by the City Of Paducah.
