The marker reads: "FIRST FRAME HOUSE Was built by Albert Hayes in 1826 a few feet south of here. It had three rooms, was "quite attractive in those days" and bore the name "Fox House". Tradition is that Gen. William Clark stayed here when he platted town, May 26, 1827, and changed its name, Pekin to Paducah, in honor of Chief Paducke.
