Resurrecting Memories & Recreating The Old Country Store

2015 July/August

Until recently, sitting out front of the old general store, as one sipped on colas and argued politics, was a faint memory of Paducah’s not-so-distant past. Crystal and Martin Troutt are resurrecting those memories after bringing new life to a couple of once desolate lots in the Lower Town Arts District.

Many Are Happy That Happy's Is Back!

2015 May/June

On a pristine, early spring day in Paducah, there emerges a sound that has been noticeably absent in recent years on North 12th Street.

2015 January/February

As we eagerly enter into a new year, we pause to reflect on a beautiful one that has just past. We are immensely grateful to share the stories of the people, events, and places that make our river city so special.

Day Trippin': Offbeat Southern Illinois

Southern Illinois is known for its lush, rolling hills, laden with grapevines that give birth to a booming wine industry. Then there's Shawnee National Forest, attracting thousands of visitors to its dense flora, rocky crevasses, and panoramic cliffy heights.
