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.
Paris became the southern terminus of the Maysville & Lexington Railroad’s Northern Division and was a major shipping center for the Kentucky Central Railroad along its route from Covington to Nicholasville.
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.
The image, looking south east, includes labeled streets, bridges, buildings and railroad routes.
