Paris, the county seat of Henry County, is the oldest incorporated municipality in West Tennessee. Paris and Henry County celebrated their one-hundred eighty-third birthday in 2006.
Paris is served by two federal highways, U. S. 79 and U. S. 641, and three state highways, 69, 77 and 54, and is 40 miles north of Interstate 40 and 20 miles from the four-lane intersecting with I-24.
Located mid-way between Nashville and Memphis, Paris is the Southern Gateway to the Land-Between-the-Lakes National Outdoor Area. Paris is the home of the “World’s Biggest Fish Fry”, which is held the last full week of April each year to focus attention on Kentucky Lake and the many recreational and tourist facilities it has to offer. Many retirees find Paris a great place to retire.
Paris is a growing city with a four-phased economy of agriculture, tourism, industry and retail trade. It is a livestock center where emphasis is placed on beef, hogs and dairy production. The primary agricultural products are corn, soybeans, wheat and tobacco. Industry is a major factor in the growth of Paris. Principal industrial products are: extruded molded rubber, school laboratory furniture, molded plastics, brakes, manufactured homes, small electric motors and compressors for refrigeration equipment.
