NKY History Hour: Colorful History Along Covington's Flood Walls

Presented by Behringer-Crawford Museum at Behringer-Crawford Museum, Covington KY

Aug 10 2022
NKY History Hour: Colorful History Along Covington's Flood Walls

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.

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.

He also has encouraged the preservation of original documents and photographs and helped start an intern program for budding historians.
