  • History of The Futrell House Bed & Breakfast

    The Futrell House Bed & Breakfast is located on Main Street in the historic district of Cadiz, Kentucky. The home and the surrounding area were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989 as part of the Cadiz Residential District.

    Built around 1895, the two-story Queen Anne home was affectionately called “the Futrell house” by locals for generations. It was purchased in 1929 by Dr. John Futrell, a popular figure in Trigg County history. The house remained in the Futrell family until 1974.

    John and his twin brother Elias opened The Futrell Clinic in downtown Cadiz in the late 1920s. For years they spent their days seeing patients at the clinic and their nights and weekends making house calls – sometimes in John’s Model-T Ford, but more often in a buggy, boat or on foot. At a time when payment was frequently made in the form of a pig or head of cabbage, those home visits included everything from delivering babies to treating the occasional family pet.

    During your stay, ask Gary to point out some of the home’s more interesting historic features, including a period photo of Dr. John’s daughter’s wedding reception held in the front hall.
