I recently had the opportunity to visit this charming River Town on the Ohio River while I was on Holiday. I learned a lot about Paducah.
First of all I learned that for the sum of $5.00, General William Clark purchased 37,000 acres of land as indicated on the above marker.
This flood wall painting celebrates the visits of the Delta Queen, the Mississippi Queen and the America Queen in the 1990s to the City of Paducah.
A Tug and barges on the Ohio River moving freight just beyond the Paducah Flood Wall. In another era Paducah was the center of much commerce during the expansion of the United States.
My visit to Paducah was certainly interesting and I learned a lot.
