McCracken County Public Library presents, “The Houses of Alben William Barkley”, with author Steve Gabany PhD. Thursday September 17, 2009 7:00 p.m.


Alben Barkley, whose given name was not Alben William Barkley, was undoubtedly one of Paducah’s best known figures. This interesting discussion led by Gabany, author of the recent 2nd edition Historic Architecture of Paducah & McCracken County, will cover several homes and buildings associated with the Veep. He will trace the rich architectural history of the buildings using computer graphics.
Steve Gabany, spent 37 years as a university administrator and professor in California and Indiana. He and his wife Carol moved to Paducah three years ago as part of the Artist Relocation Program. They completed the renovation of the “Sebree House”, 6th and Madison, which serves as an art studio and bed and breakfast.
Copies of his architectural books will be available for purchase & autographing.

All library programs are free & open to the public.
