Construction in the 1840's, the two-story Greek Revival structure overlooking the Paducah riverfront was originally the location of the Branch Bank of Louisville, one of the community's first banks. After the Civil War, the building was used for many years as a hotel before becoming the headquarters of the Henry A. Petter Supply Company in 1890. This mill and boat supply company provided provisions to packets steamers tied up at the riverfront. The Petter Supply Company remained at this site for over 100 years and remains one of Paducah's most important enterprises. In the late 1990's, the building was restored as the River Heritage Museum which celebrates the maritime history of the four rivers region.
