Community Overview

Paris is a city and county seat of Lamar County, Texas, United States. Located in Northeast Texas at the western edge of the Piney Woods. Following a tradition of American cities named "Paris" (named after France's capital), the city commissioned a 65-foot-tall (20 m) replica of the Eiffel Tower in 1993 and installed it on site of the Love Civic Center, southeast of the town square. In 1998, presumably as a response to the 1993 construction of  a 60-foot-tall (18 m) tower in Paris, Tennessee, the city placed a giant red cowboy hat atop its tower.

The City of Paris, incorporated in 1845, is located in Lamar County and has a rich history beginning as a center for agricultural trade. Today, Paris is a thriving community of economic activity for the Red River Valley. Paris is home of multiple Fortune 500 manufacturing facilities and is a regional hub for medical care.
