Colorful History Along Covington's Flood WallsScreen Shot 2022 08 03 at 2.20.31 PM

NKY History Hour - 6:30 p.m., Wed., Aug. 10

Stretching 100s of feet along Covington KY's flood walls, are eighteen magnificent, colorful murals by internationally acclaimed artist Robert Dafford and his team. These captivating images depict the rich history of Covington, Northern Kentucky and the Roebling Bridge from 8000 B.C. to 2008 A.D.

From prehistoric buffalo crossing the Ohio River to a more present day depiction of the riverfront with historic riverboats and fireworks, each scene tells an important story of our area's history while creating a spectacular visual effect. 

Join local author and historian Karl Lietzenmayer, as he gives a virtual tour of Northern Kentucky's beautifully painted water's edge during the next virtual NKY History Hour at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, August 10.
