The city was founded in 1815 as a settlement of both white settlers and Native Americans, who lived in harmony for many years. However, in 1827, William Clark forced the natives out of Paducah with a land title issued by the US Supreme Court. Afterwards, Paducah was a site of much river trade, mainly due to its location on both the Tennessee and Ohio Rivers. It was captured during the Civil War by Union forces, allowing the Union control of the Tennessee and Ohio Rivers and during the 20th century was the site of urban renewal and renewed interest in manufacturing.

Paducah, like most cities in Kentucky, has a humid continental climate, classified by having four distinct seasons. During the summer months, high temperatures typically average around 90 degrees, while they drop during the night to around 66 degrees. During the winter months, it rarely gets above 45 degrees, and can drop significantly to just under freezing temperatures, with snowfall being fairly common in the heart of the season.
