Understand[edit]

The Eiffel Tower of Paris, Tennessee

Paris is the county seat of Henry County, Tennessee. It is near the shore of Kentucky Lake and the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area.

Between about 1970 and 1990, Paris became the center of the Old Beachy Amish. Beachy Amish from different regions moved there to maintain their traditional ways. Because of internal conflicts, most Old Beachy Amish left the region in the early 1990s and had completely vacated it by 2000.

Local companies manufacture brakes, small electric motors, aftermarket auto parts, metal doors, rubber parts and school laboratory furniture.

Get in[edit]
