William Clark, of Lewis & Clark fame, platted Paducah in 1827 at the northernmost point of what is now the Tennessee Tombigbee Waterway, he named it in honor of the Padouca Indians. Its strategic location at the confluence of the Ohio and Tennessee rivers make it a hub of commerce and recreation. Besides being the recognized US capitol of quilting, the city offers a vibrant arts community, centered in the city's historical district. For more information on Paducah, see the link below to the city's Convention & Visitor's Bureau.
