As my buddy and I were driving through the town, we saw perhaps a dozen of these murals; all were interesting and well done. A few were excellent, and worth inspecting on foot. I was especially impressed by the William Bartram mural, which celebrates the great explorer, naturalist, and nature writer, who traveled down the river in the late 18th... More

The murals are very interesting. The work is from a variety of artists so each one offers a different style. They go from the founding of the community to more modern times so there is something for everyone. The murals are also refreshed from time to time so they stay looking good

Three friends and I decided to take a driving tour of downtown Palatka and see the 20+ murals throughout the city. We got a map and headed to the first one. They were amazing! Easy to locate and not too far apart. The paintings were very diverse in themes, styles, artists and subjects. There was everything from local flora and... More

The murals are located in a few different places around Palatka. If you wish to see them, pick a nice day to go to Palatka and have a walk around. Most of them are located off of the main street that runs through the town part St. Johns Avenue. If you can't them, pop into one of the shops or... More

We discovered this City during our trip to Key west, we were estonished by the artistic Murals but disappointed by the negligence of protection. Cars were parking in front of those beautiful monuments of art. I am sure the authorities will act to prevaent such damages.

Since I live here I am fortunate to see these murals nearly everyday. The project was started several years ago and named after a dear friend of mine, Lee Conlee. If you happen to be in Palatka or passing through stop by the welcome office or Chamber of Commerce and pick up a map. Put your walking shoes on and... More

What probably started out as an attempt to artistically cover the graffiti in this ghetto, ended up as beautiful murals that depict the character and history of the area. It may be one of the few non-depressing parts of this side of Palatka

In the small city of Palatka there are over 20 large murals on walls of buildings. These are NOT graffiti. (As a matter of fact, I did not see a single piece of graffiti in the city. The paintings are spread out over an approximately 10X3 block area. The block are small, so it is an easy walk to see... More

I absolutely love the murals in Palatka. They are beautifully painted. They bring an old time charm to the city.
