The town of Perryville has been a National Historic Register District since 1976. Looking much as it did during the 1862 Battle of Perryville, this is one of the most intact nineteenth-century communities in the state. The 1840's commercial district, "Merchants' Row", still stands. Numerous homes and churches served as field hospitals and remnants of the battle's aftermath remain.
