The next meeting of the Jackson Purchase Historical Society is 10:30 AM, Saturday, July 19, 2014, in Paducah at Baptist Health Paducah, 2501 Kentucky Avenue. The meeting is in Conference Room A/B on the first floor of Doctor’s Building 2.
Our speakers are Ed and Meagan Musselman who have purchased and are renovating the old Coca Cola plant in Paducah and turning the building into multi-purpose commercial space. The plant was built in 1939 and is an excellent example of Art Deco architecture. Since 2013, it has been listed on the National register. The Musselmans will give a brief tour afterwards.
