I grew up in Paducah and was in the market place hundreds of times and never knew it was named "William Clark". Just shows that you can continue to learn about history evrey single day. The Market House was once a thriving retail center on Second Street where shoppers could purchase fresh meats of all kinds, as well as home made jellies, preserves and jams. in addition they could purchase many freshly grown vegetables and fruits either inside the stalls or on the streets close by on Kentucky Avenue.
The Market House now houses a nice museum and small theater. If you are in the downtown Paducah area this is one the stops you should make. Viewing what is lodged inside today and picturing the past as it was.
