The floodwall murals are excellent. We always drive by while in town. You can see the history in each work of art. Really fantastic!

Our second visit to this incredible landmark. The artistry is top-notch and the sheer scale is almost overwhelming. One thing we noticed is that if you drive by very slowly, the murals seem to move with you. Love this place!

This is one of my favorite places to go everytime I visit my family here in town! The history that is captured by the talented artist is astonishing and breathtaking! If only art could be on every wall!?

The Murals are great and done in such detail. The history of Portsmouth is very interesting to say the least. It was going great until the mill and shoe companies one by one closed.

amazing ! Probably best viewed while walking. We viewed by car. It took about 10 minutes. If we had time I would have liked to walk the street to view this

Come stroll or drive to see the beautiful depictions of times past in Portsmouth, Ohio. The story unfolds about life along the beautiful Ohio River, The Erie Canal, steel mill, railroad to the pro football team. The flood wall murals are breathtaking.

The wall tells a very interesting story about Portsmouth history. It also tells the story of the artist that painted it. It is a real must see! Words don't do it justice.

It's a marble of Southern Ohio's art. It's great to walk with family and friends especially in the evening on spring or fall while it's not too hot or cold. I visited many times and still look new and interesting things that tell the history...More
