Colored Skating Rink (Paducah, KY)

In 1909, the Paducah Colored skating rink was up for sale. The 55 ft. lot, which had cost $4,000, was being sold for $2,500. The rink was located on Tenth Street.

In 1910, the rink was still in existence when the Colored revival was held there in September. The revival was held by Lena Mason from Philadelphia, PA, with assistance from Reverend G. W. Robinson, pastor of the African Methodist Evangelical Church in Paducah.
