Irvin Cobb Hotel
We’d be remiss if we didn’t take the opportunity to restore the ghost signs on our next door neighbor and Paducah icon, The Irvin Cobb Hotel. You probably know the rich history of the hotel, and its namesake, which first opened in 1929. What you might not know is that the architect, Walter W. Ahlschlager, was fairly renowned in his own right. Not only did he engineer the Irvin Cobb, but he was also the architect for the Medinah Athletic Club in Chicago and the Beacon Theatre in New York City!
Can be viewed from Broadway between 7th St. and 6th St.
