This fountain will always be my image of Paris not the Eiffel Tower. When I was a kid I ran up to the fountain watching the goldfish that swam around. Change is always happening but downtown Paris, Texas was a classy place in my youth. I remember the city buses you could ride for a token that pulled up by Grand Theatre and Sears.Belks that had three floors and an elevator.

I am only two decades old but I like the fountain downtown as well. It symbolizes Paris for me too. The whole eiffel tower and red cowboy had is a little cheesy for me. Anyway, every time we would come in to town on the weekends my dad would let me throw change into the fountain. Awwww! the sweet memories!

I remember being six years old, going to town with my dad's older friend, Mr. James Earl King. He took me to Young's Western Wear, and then to Gibson's where he bought me my first 45 record of CW McCall's "Convoy". I will always see Paris, and the fountain, as landmarks of my youth, people now departed, better days gone by and yet still to come. There is something really good about this place in spite of all the bad that is said on here. And to all the racists on here, I grew up with black children from down the road. Our dad's rode horses together, rodeoed together, we worked together in the hayfields, we ate watermelon with dirty hands on the back of pickup truck tailgates. Paris looked like a scene out of Urban Cowboy. It was a better time. Folks, let's try to get along. We truly have got it good in Paris. Let's don't destroy ourselves.
