Picturesque Maysville, nestled on the banks of the Ohio River in Northeastern Kentucky, is a community rich in history. From it's early years as a gateway for western expansion, through turbulent years as an escape route for fugitive slaves, to its glamorous side as a host to two Hollywood premiers - Maysville has always been proud of the many roles it has played. 

Maysville's beginnings, growth and influence are displayed on the (10) floodwall murals located on McDonald Parkway.
