Cobblestone Capital of Canada



Paris is known as a Cobblestone Capital of Canada. These small round stones were pulled out of the nearby Grand River and layered on top of each other with cement.

There are 12 homes and 2 cobblestone churches left in Paris. These Paris cobblestone buildings were all built around the mid-1800s.

The Norman Hamilton home – “Hamilton Place” – is one of Paris’ finest examples of cobblestone masonry. Constructed by Levi Boughton from New York State, it was completed in 1844. Paul Wickson, a well-known Canadian painter, also resided here and completed many of his paintings in the belvedere.
