This Historic Gas Station Is Now Home To Kentucky’s Most Charming Antique Shop

When driving through a Kentucky town, you’ll often pass an old building, standing vacant and awaiting a new life. You may not give these structures much thought beyond wondering what they once were, but thankfully, some locals step up and try to bring these buildings back to life. In Paducah, a local couple saw the potential in a historic gas station on a street corner in town. This gas station is now Frenchtown Station, and it happens to be Kentucky’s most charming antique shop.

Frenchtown Station was originally built to evoke feelings of home, and it’s incredible that it is able to continue on in this manner with its new life as an adorable antique shop.
