View of Paris, Bourbon County, K.Y., 1870 / drawn & published by A. Ruger.

This bird’s-eye view print of Paris, Kentucky was drawn and published by Albert Ruger in 1870. Paris was established in the late 1700's along the Stoner Fork of the Licking River.

Its population in 1870 was 2,867. The Bourbon County Court House, built in the late 1790's, was destroyed by fire two years after this map’s publishing.
