As the county seat, Paris is home to the county courthouse. This is an attractive, if simple, old building in the heart of the community on the main Hwy through town. However, it has suffered at the hands of "remodeling," with a plan, incongruous, and apparently cheaply made box-structure with inconsistent aluminum windows added between the two columns right over the front entrance. The interior has similarly been blighted with cheap "modern" ceiling panels and fake-wood wall veneer. It is an easy spot to visit when driving through town as it is right on the main highway in the centre of town.
