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 rode through the cemetery and found the man with the cowboy boots on, unbelievable. Some of the monuments were just fabulous! Beautiful cemetery, nice addition to the town of Paris.

Was told about EVERGREEN CEMETERY when my family moved here three years ago.It is a very well kept cemetery. But the attraction here is a beautiful headstone statue of Jesus wearing cowboy boots !!!!!!!! It brought a smile to my face.. If your near here check it out.

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.

Anyone who is visiting Paris,TX or just driving through must see the Evergreen cemetery. Within its vast well manicured headstones you will find some unique sites. One of the most popular is the monument, "Jesus in cowboy boots" as well as the history of seeing ghosts! It's massive and beautiful to see the many gravestones from several centuries.
