Paramount Plaza Walk-of-Fame
Designed as a piano keyboard, the Walk-of-Fame pays tribute to those individuals who have contributed to Grafton's musical legacy. Each year the Village of Grafton selects at least one artist for induction. One black granite piano key is designed for each artist and includes their birth name, nickname and/or musical legacy, and primary musical instrument.

Water Fountain and Sculpture
The water fountain evokes images of the Milwaukee River as the site of the Paramount recordings in Grafton. The sculpture, designed and created by local artist Norm Christianson, depicts a visual representation of Grafton's musical heritage.

The Walk of Fame is visible to the right of the fountain.

Paramount Plaza Walk of Fame is located in Grafton, Wisconsin.
