The Market House Museum is now open for the 2014 season! James Crawford, Native American Folk Art Wood Carver, a noteworthy, light-hearted, sometimes humorous wooden folk art carving collection is highlighted as the focal exhibit for spring. Crawford was a Paducahan who grew up playing on the banks of the Ohio, and as a young adult, went off to WWI and then came back to assist his father selling BBQ sandwiches in the 1905 Paducah Market House. His carvings were done at night and in his spare time, and later, after his death in Grayling, Michigan, were donated by his family to the Market House Museum collections.
New extended hours are 10 am-4 pm, Tuesday-Saturday; closed major holidays. Open mornings for school or group tours by pre-arranged appointment; call the museum to schedule during regular business hours.
