Open 24 hours every day. I stopped at night and the bathroom was clean. A little ways off the highway but good signage to get you on and off the highway to the rest stop.

We always make this our rest stop going and coming and it has always been clean and the staff helpful. Good place to pick up maps and information on attractions, not to mention see the inside of a beautiful old mansion.

It is hard to believe that this is a welcome center. It is a historic mansion. The staff are all outstanding and very helpful. Last night Santa made an appearance and for two solid hours the children and families roamed the house and appreciated the history. Yes, there are rest rooms, maps, brochures and all of the usual things but... More

Shortly after moving to Paducah, my wife and I decided to check this place out as we'd heard it had some interesting history. We received a short tour from one of the employees who was very knowledgable and friendly. It is an amazing structure with lots of neat artifacts inside. Definitely worth your time.

Not often you find your rest stop/welcome center in an historic home. Guided tour took just a few minutes, but well worth the time. Glad state of Kentucky decided to save the house.

The welcome center is beautiful. I suggest you stop by at Christmas time when there is no need for scheduled tours to enjoy the orchestra and even a Santa foe the kids. The facilities are well kept with 24 hour maintenance. At night there are workers in a small office in the back building who walks the grounds not only... More

One of the best rest stops I've been to... Clean bathrooms with fresh flowers (seen multiple times) Nice size tourism info center A little tricky to get to depending what direction you're traveling but worth the rest. Nicely manicured lawn for a short walk
