A brief check turns up ten localities named "Paris" in the U.S., of which
the best known is probably Paris, Texas. (It has at least been arranged
that no two post offices in a given state have the same name.) In addition,
there are three New Parises, a Paris Crossing, a South Paris, and even
a St. Paris....

(Details: Paris AR ID IL KY ME MO MS OH TN TX, New Paris IN OH PA, Paris
Crossing IN, South Paris ME, Saint Paris OH.)
