If These Walls Could Talk


favorite downtown Waterloo meeting place has taken to heart the phrase “If these walls could talk”.  A historical depiction of iconic Waterloo moments and places covers the walls of On the Rocks located at 708 Jefferson Street. The owner, Patrick Plumley, is hoping to bring life, color and positivity to Waterloo. Plumley teamed up with friend Mike Marshall to cover the blank walls of this renovated downtown building – hoping to depict a historical catalog of Waterloo with a modern element! The artist has invested 200+ hours to this masterpiece – showcasing the 4th Street Bridge, the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center, The Brown Derby Ballroom, the railroad and Lincoln Park and the iconic Starlite Drive-in Theatre. Woven through each mural are current day depictions as well – including the Irish Fest and more!  This bar owner and artist are allowing these walls to speak. Oh the stories they and business patrons can tell! This is a must see hot spot in downtown Waterloo!
