This Quirky Little Town In Texas Is Named After The Famous City In France
Tons of states and countries have cities that share a name. There’s Beaumont in Texas and California, Portland in Oregon and Maine, and Columbus in Ohio and Georgia, to name a few. However, none of these cities go out of their way to emulate each other, architecturally or otherwise. That’s what sets Paris, Texas apart from the aforementioned places – the town erected a monument that pays tribute to its counterpart in France, and it’s a marvel that everyone needs to visit at least once.
