Bourbon Community Hospital
Horses, history, and hospitality all in one beautiful town just a short, scenic 17-mile trip from Lexington. Paris features glorious, rolling pastures and a town full of shopping and historic sights. This namesake of the famous French city was founded in 1789. Located in Bourbon County, Kentucky, Paris is a town with numerous horse farms sprinkling the countryside, giving the area the sort of natural grace and beauty one would expect from such a historic Kentucky town. Two of the most famous Paris natives are Garrett Morgan, who invented the tri-color traffic light, and Secretariat, the Triple Crown winning racehorse. With plenty of festivals and other events year-round, homegrown hospitality abounds within the lovely town of Paris.
