View Of Main Street, Paris, KY. From An Old Engraving. (Printed verso reads: "The county seat of Bourbon, established by the Va. Legislature in 1789 as 'Hopewell', was renamed Paris at the suggestion of James Garrard, a trustee, of French Huguenot descent. The town was laid out along a buffalo trail to the salt springs. This view (from an engraving of about 1840) shows Main St. in front of the court house. Beyond the last houses a large pond lay for many years.") 2 copies
