Paducah named to national list of best small town main streets

PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

Paducah, Kentucky has been named to Top Value Review’s list of the top 50 ‘Best Small Town Main Streets in America.’

Paducah ranked 33 on the list.

The editors used several factors to compile the list including being included on a major register, category of downtown attractions, having notable historic places, and being nationally ranked.

In order to be included as a small town, the city had to have fewer than 60,000 residents on the 2010 census.

In the summary, the Top Value editors noted that Paducah’s downtown is built around the arts. The editors pointed out attractions like art galleries down main street, the Floodwall murals, and the rotating exhibits at the National Quilt museum.
