allies opportunity 300PADUCAH, Ky. (4/16/13) – The Lower Town Neighborhood Association (LTNA) is happy to announce its 33rd annual Tour of Homes April 26 and 27, during Quilt Week. The Home Tour is 6 to 9 PM Friday, and 2 to 5 PM Saturday.
 
Lower Town is the oldest residential neighborhood in the city. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it is home to many beautifully restored homes as well as home to the nationally acclaimed Artist Relocation Program.
 
This year, LTNA recruited a record 11 residential homes for the public showing, including: an apartment in the much sought after Colonial – home of Bob and Ann Johnston at 333 N. 7th Street; architect Rodney Wright’s environmentally “green” home at 509 N. 4th Street; and the Smedley-Yeiser at 533 Madison Street – a Greek Revival pre-Civil War home, and former location of the Alben Barkley Museum.
 
In addition to the 11 homes on the tour, visitors may also get a special look into the working art spaces of the Lower Town Arts District. Nine studios and galleries will also be open during special hours. These art spaces are independent of the homes on the Home Tour, but may coincide with some artists’ live/work spaces.
 
According to Dee Felts, co-chair with Lee King of the LTNA Home Tour, “A unique aspect of the Home Tour this year is its partnership with the Paducah School of Art Open House. Visitors touring the newly opened Lower Town Art School will also have an opportunity to tour our beautiful neighborhood.”
 
Ticket sales benefit the Lower Town Neighborhood Association. Tickets are available for $10 at Bryerpatch Studio at 502 N. 5th Street, Etcetera Coffeehouse at 320 N. 6th Street and Paducah Renaissance Alliance at 605 Broadway.
 
For more information, contact Dee Felts or Lee King at 270-559-3496, or visit the above locations to purchase tickets in advance.
 
The Lower Town Neighborhood Association strives to increase awareness of the historical and architectural value of Lower Town and assist with the general maintenance of the area and structures.
 
For more information on PRA, please visit the website at www.paducahalliance.org. The Paducah Renaissance Alliance, a national Main Street program, serves to stimulate the economic vitality of the historic downtown and Lower Town arts district, while protecting the historic integrity of our community.
