Paris, Maine, USA

Paris, Oxford, Maine, USA

As a point of clarification; in Maine, there is often confusion between the naming of South Paris versus Paris. As if it isn’t already tough enough that the town’s name competes with France’s "City of Lights." You’ll hear South Paris and Paris used interchangeably in the Oxford Hills region. What you need to know is simple. South Paris is the old commercial and manufacturing hub located within Paris, Maine. In addition to the South Paris downtown is Paris Hill, the historical district paying homage to the town’s architectural roots.
