PADUCAH, KY – The Market House, built in 1905, provides the community with a rich cultural center that houses an art gallery, an event center, a museum and a performing arts theater located in the heart of downtown Paducah.
Up until the 1960s, the Market building was a bustling plaza filled with local produce vendors and various merchants selling their goods.
Today the building continues to be a local icon and landmark nestled across the street from many locally owned businesses that include gems like Kirchhoff’s Bakery & Deli that opened in the 1800s, a family owned shop now in its 5th generation.
Curls & Cream featuring rolled ice cream opened on July 1, 2017 just down the street on Market Square.
