I recently drove from Columbia SC to Paducah Kentucky. The town of Paducah was made famous in 1938 by a flood that destroyed 95% of the town. The town was eventually rebuilt. Someone in the town was very business savvy. The community knew that in order to survive, they needed one or more big attractions to keep this little community alive and thriving. A quilt museum was just the ticket. By 1990, the museum was designated by Congress as the National Quilt Museum for the United States.
