Check out the Edgar County Courthouse. It was built in 1893, but recently got a much-needed makeover thanks to donations.
"You get down to it and they started working on it. You're pretty proud."
That pride is apparent. The community gave $1 million to make it possible.
The generosity continues at the Bicentennial Art Center & Museum. It used to be a home before the owner donated it in his wife's honor. Now, it's home to some impressive works of art.
"In a small town especially, people dabble in it and they don't think they're talented."
Speaking of talent, it's also on display at Paris High School's "Wall of Fame." It honors students who stand out in athletics, academics, volunteerism and more.
"Everybody's got a chance of being on that."
And everyone is family at Kurly Q's Restaurant. The regulars say you won't want to miss out on their specials. It's a business that's been passed down for generations.
In a place, rich with history, you can find it all in Our Town. The "Wall of Fame" is being moved to a new location. Thanks to millions in state funding, and a referendum approved by voters, Paris will soon have a new high school.
