Settled over a century and a half ago, today Paris and the surrounding community is quickly becoming a focal point of the 18,600 acre Mark Twain Lake in northeast Missouri. The county seat of Monroe County, Paris is nestled in the agriculturally-fertile Salt River Valley. Despite its small size (1,220 in Paris and less than 9,000 in the county), the area offers virtually every accommodation and novelty found in much larger population centers. And because of its limited population, the community places a high regard on its people and neighbors. In one respect, the area is a throwback to a bygone era: people live in harmony; kids are free to be kids; elderly are treated with respect; and no one is afraid to take a walk in the evening. Paris is the “hometown” of internationally acclaimed artist Gordon Snidow, whose works can be found in the county’s historical society’s museum at the courthouse, and the late Mary Margaret McBride, author and radio and television personality. Visitors to Mark Twain Lake will be attracted by Florida’s Mark Twain Shrine. The quarter-of-a-century old museum is a tribute to Samuel Clemens, who was born in the county and in later years used many of his childhood friends from the county in his books. Along with Twain’s original birthplace, the Shrine possesses the authors invaluable handwritten manuscript of “Tom Sawyer”. The area is proud of its past. One of Missouri’ four remaining covered bridges is located just west of town and the county’s history can be found uniquely muraled in the rotunda of the courthouse. Mark Twain Country Club, a semi-private, nine-hole golf course, is located just east of Paris.

According to the United States Census Bureau, Madison has a total area of 0.45 square miles (1.17 km), all of it land. Madison was always a small town, but due to a fire set by a lumber company, it burned much of the town down. After this, many moved out. Today, a Casey’s General Store rests where the lumber company once did. Madison used to carry a pizza place, a bowling alley, a drug store, a jail, and much more. In the mid-to-late 19th century a man that went by the name Aterbury, who was a banker, built three large houses on the north end of town. One for him, and the other two for his relatives. Sadly, one burnt to the ground. Two still remain, including the one that Mr. Aterbury lived in himself, which is located on North Street; it is the biggest house in Madison.
