Gen. William Clark, the founder of Paducah, designated the Second Street area as a location for public affairs. The original name for Second Street was "Market" reflecting its use as a trading center. The original Market House was built of logs in 1836. A larger brick building was constructed on this site in 1850 and was used as a hospital during the civil War. The present 1905 Market House was designed by W.L. Brainerd and built by F.W.Katterjohn for $25,000. In 1963 the building was converted to a cultural center, a project encouraged by the Paducah Civic Beautification Board. The Market House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today it remains the center of cultural activity in downtown Paducah.
