Lots of history. If you like old markers and tombstones. You have to see Jesus with cowboy boots. Plan to spend an hour walking or less time driving thru cemetery.

The manager greatly assisted us in finding ancestors' gravesites. We really appreciated that! A beautifully maintained cemetery with several large artistic tombstones. Very impressive part of Paris' history.

I've always heard of some unique headstones in Evergreen Cemetery. In January 2018 I attended a graveside service at this cemetery. It is well laid out as long as you know what grid you are going to. As I drove thru the one lane paths through I saw the well known Jesus in cowboy boots headstone, the buffalo headstone, many angel markers, and just a log of beautiful ones with heart touching sentiments.

Lots to see in this well maintained cemetery.
Interesting head stones and inscriptions...full-life Bison, trees, Jesus wearing boots.
Park the car and walk on foot.

Evergreen is one of the most beautiful cemeteries that we have in Paris. The graves & areas are kept nice. I have family burried there.

We visited this cemetery as we are geocachers, and there are a few in this cemetery. There are many very old graves. The statuary in this cemetery is phenomenal. Worth the visit if you're in Paris with a little time to kill.

The Evergreen cemetery is a must for all history and romantic wanderers! There are beautifully engraved headstones dating back to the 1800s as this is on the Historical Registry. Don't miss Jesus in Cowboy boots headstone, not just for the boots, but for the lovely wreath work! There are 4 sides of this massive work. Also are several massive stones throughout the cemetery, we have lunch there when I visit and find a new treasure every time. The giant trees and always green grass are a nice respite from the summer heat

We found the monument of Jesus in Cowboy boots after circling a couple of times. It is pretty much in the center of the cemetery near the corner of N Main and Blk K. There is a tree and a Historic sign on the corner near the monument of Mr. Babcock.

Kinda neat to see, in my opinion.
