PADUCAH, KY – These beautiful, magical-3D murals, painted by muralists Dafford, Roe and others, turned a dull-grey concrete wall into one of the best art displays in the United States located along the Mighty Ohio River in one of America’s best small towns, Paducah, KY.

The murals span three city blocks in the heart of downtown. The actual floodwall is 12.5 miles long built after the flood of 1937.

The murals are flawlessly maintained that have bronze interpretive-panels at the foot of each painting that tell the history for that particular time.

Today the painted floodwall is Kentucky’s most popular tourist attraction located a few mile east of I-24 – a must see when passing through.

The IC 2-8-2  1518 Mikado steam locomotive that sits along the floodwall is the only one in existance today, donated by the City Of Paducah.

PADUCAH, KY – This incredible 8 cylinder three-wheel motorcycle was engineered and built right here in Paducah by Jerry, a retired Pipefitter and part-time inventor.

Jerry happens to be one of those brilliant people who can turn an idea into reality by building it himself. It was a pleasure Jerry.

PADUCAH, KY – The Columbia Theatre was awarded a $100,000 Grant in May 2017 from the Carson Myre Foundation that will allow the next renovation phase for the 1927 building.

When the Columbia Theatre opened in 1927, it brought Hollywood to Paducah featuring the latest silent movies and live theatre.

By 1987, featuring only movies, it closed its doors permanently. This was shortly after the Cimemark 10-screen multi-theater opened in Paducah Oaks Mall.

The marquee was magical, I hear, and is one step closer to lighting up Broadway – aka Paducah’s Main Street – once again featuring live shows, movies and events in beautiful downtown Paducah.
