A 65-foot Eiffel Tower replica might normally look a little out of place in Texas, but the citizens of Paris, the county seat of Lamar, Texas, have topped it with a red cowboy hat for a little local flavor. Although Dallas is only two hours away, there's plenty to do without ever leaving Paris, including golf, shopping, dining and visits to the community theater. With an average commute time of only 15.5 minutes, Paris citizens have ample opportunity to take advantage of everything their city offers.

Historical Buildings! Many old buildings in Paris are historically significant, including the Wise House, a beautiful three-story building with Queen Anne style masonry. The present day Lamar County Courthouse was built from pink granite in 1917 in the Classical Revival style. The 146-year-old Sam Bell Maxey House is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark and a popular local attraction. These and other buildings imbue Paris neighborhoods with unique character.
Famous Art! Perhaps the most famous attraction in the city is a 12-foot tall statue of Jesus Christ located in Evergreen Cemetery, the final resting place of around 50,000 people, including famous names such as John J. Culbertson, the man who lends his name to the Culbertson Fountain. Made from Carrera marble, the fountain is the standout piece of architecture in the town's square.
