A Texas city that built its own Eiffel Tower capped with a 31/2-foot-tall red Stetson cowboy hat.
We went off the beaten path just to see this and I recall my husband being annoyed.....after he said he was glad we stopped! Yay! So if you get the chance stop!

We visit this shrine to our local veterans a few times a year. They have been consistently expanding this memorial over the last couple of years and still are. Very humbling experience to walk through this memorial. At the entrance they have a box for you to deposit old worn out flags to be disposed of with honor. Recommend anyone that lives locally or passing through see this great tribute to our armed forces.

I grew up in Paris, so the chance to "be downtown" is a tempting one!!! Sometimes I just love to get my lunch, and sit in my car and watch the squirrels and look at the pretty landscaping!!

Anyone who is visiting Paris,TX or just driving through must see the Evergreen cemetery. Within its vast well manicured headstones you will find some unique sites. One of the most popular is the monument, "Jesus in cowboy boots" as well as the history of seeing ghosts! It's massive and beautiful to see the many gravestones from several centuries.

In 1868, Samuel Bell Maxey and his family moved into their fashionable new home on the south side of Paris, Texas. Built in the High Italianate style, the two-story frame structure was a proper home for the West Point-educated Mexican War veteran, Confederate general, and two-term U.S. senator. Maxey and his wife Matilda hosted many distinguished guests and the house soon became the town's social center. Today, the home showcases original family furnishings, clothing, and letters, which provide visual voices for three successive generations.
I took my kids at Christmas. Nice tour, nice history lesson. Kids did a little craft. Nice museum to visit.

We invite you to come experience the rich history and culture Lamar, Red River, Delta, and Fannin Counties have to offer. Our sections include Native American, Art, Astronomy, Archeology and Student/Education. Exhibits will be changed every four months to enable greater coverage of the wide range of collections available. School groups and tours are welcome.
I'd definitely rate this one high except it was quite small. The displays were excellent, it was exceptionally clean and well maintained in a beautiful old train station (love those buildings). The docent was very friendly. I have to ding them on the Alamo display which repeatedly referred to David Crockett as Davey (he didn't like that moniker and would correct those that used it - so I've go your back Mr. Crockett). Some very nice displays of Caddo pottery, native wildlife skeletons, etc. If you are nearby the attraction is free of charge and likely to grow thereby improve so stop in and browse...you may learn something!

I've had season tickets to this theater for several years and have been so delighted with the breadth of talent offered in this small town. ..not just actors but musicians, dancers and singers. The plays and musicals never fail to be well cast and professionally acted. The venue is small, intimate and quite lovely. The sets are very professional. The theater is never full so don't think you can't come spur-of-the-moment because there will be seats available. See ya'll there!

Located on the Paris town square, the gallery features art from local professional artists, including painting, photography, ceramics, and custom furniture. Open Mon-Fri 8:30-5 and Sat 10-4. A recommended stop while visiting the historic town square.

John S. Chisum [1824-1884] was a Texas and New Mexico cattle baron. He was born in Paris, Texas and was known for his participation in the Lincoln County War in New Mexico and his friendship with Billy the Kid. A noted Texas historical figure, he is often confused with the famous Texas cattleman Jesse Chisholm, namesake of the Chisholm Trail. Before his death in Arkansas, John Chisum requested to be buried back in Paris and this small memorial park southwest of downtown is the site of the family cemetery. A nice grave memorial rests here with simple landscaping, a curved drive, and a Texas Historical Marker. An interesting stop for Texas History buffs.
