We’re visiting my parents in the charming city of Paducah, KY. Here are a few reasons you should include Paducah in your travels.
The City of Paducah is located about halfway between St. Louis, Missouri and Nashville, Tennessee at the confluence of the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers. Paducah is often called the Four-Rivers Area due to the proximity of the Ohio, Tennessee, Cumberland, and Mississippi Rivers.
~ It is the home of the Museum of the American Quilter's Society, the Paducah Railroad Museum, the River Heritage Museum and much more.~
If you’re a quilter, this is a MUST SEE!
Now, if you’re ready for something to take your breath away
(paramedics are standing by) check this out!
These hand painted MURALS span several blocks along the Ohio River floodwall and depict the history of Western Kentucky.
It's worth a visit just to see these beautiful murals!
These are works of ART and I don’t mean “paint by number!”
The "Wall to Wall" murals are by muralist Robert Dafford. The murals have been painted over 11 years by Robert Dafford and a team of artists who work with him.
We were lucky enough to watch the painter in action. He was really nice!
~My personal favorite~
…because of the man painted into the bottom right corner, “walking” along the curb.
Be sure to circle Paducah on your roadmap.
It’s a MUST-SEE!
Blessings Y’all, Kathy
