This historic fire burned practically everything in its path from the southern edge of the city of Paris to its northeastern limits.
This tragedy resulted in a great comeback story, as citizens began to rapidly rebuild. What makes the Paris downtown area unique today is that it is home to one of the largest collections of 1916-1918 period buildings in the nation.
In two years, Paris will recognize the 100′th anniversary of the Great Paris Fire. Plans are already underway for a Fire Festival to celebrate the 100th anniversary. For those interested in more information, contact Cheri Bedford, Paris Main Street Coordinator at 903-784-9293.
