    sidewalk art on Sycamore Street

    I guess this art was sanctioned by the city and it's not some very good artist destined to see his work destroyed as the city puts the sidewalk "right". However, along Sycamore Street not far from the old courthouse is this bit of artwork.

    Cockade Alley

    As you drive to the visitor's centre, you'll make a narrow cobblestone street called Cockade Alley and I'll bet you wonder the origin of that name. Petersburg earned the nickname "Cockade City" due to their devotion to the cause during the War of 1812 inspired the nickname "Cockade City" in honour of the rosette they wore on their caps.
