Paris in Bear Lake County, Idaho — The American West (Mountains)
Swiss stone masons cut and carved red sandstone that horse and ox teams hauled from a canyon 18 miles away. In winter, sled loads of rock were pulled over ice across Bear Lake. Shingles and other lumber came from nearby forests. After a century of use, this unaltered monument remains as a reminder of pioneer achievement.
