    The Culbertson Fountain

    A gift of J. J. Culbertson to culminate the rebuilding of Paris, after the fire of 1916. Begun as a dream in 1924 and completed in 1927, the Culbertson Fountain reigns not only as the unique focal point for Paris and Lamar County but as the “prettiest plaza in the state of Texas.” (Texas Monthly)
