Long Description:
The flood wall is actually a wall built during the 1940s to keep the Ohio River from flooding the towns of Cannelton, Tell City, and Troy after the terrible flood of January 1937, Sunday, January 24, was named "Black Sunday" because this flood damaged and destroyed so many buildings along the river.The wall was finished in September of 1950. It has stood the test of time ever since. In 2001 a flood wall mural was painted in Cannelton under the directions of artist Rex Robinson. It depicts the history of Cannelton,.. which could easily be compared to many rivertown histories. Featured on the mural are Cotton Mill, Myers Grade School, as well as Barges, riverboat, flatboats and more,.
