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 of many different events and human efforts!, congratulations Portsmouth!

The Portsmouth flood wall has been transformed into a chronological history of the area. Beginning on the East end of the wall with depictions of some of the prehistoric inhabitants and the works they left behind and progressing to the exploration of explorers and the to early villages. All aspects of the community are included and accurately portrayed.

Murals are a MUST when visiting Portsmouth, OH! Colorful illustrations depict Portsmouth's history, beginning with the Shawnee Indians. Located on a quiet side street that invites pedestrians to walk and enjoy. We have revisited several times.
Thank you for your kind words and we hope you return this summer to enjoy our warm weather. 更多
