The Paris Star has been covering the Prettiest Little Town in Canada since 1851 when there were fewer than 2,000 residents in the town. The weekly community newspaper focuses on human interest stories about local residents along with area news, social events and sports. Paris itself sits at the convergence of the Nith and Grand Rivers. Paris is also known as the cobblestone capital of Canada due to its high number of historic cobblestone homes. The community is known for its connection to the invention of the telephone for it was Aug. 3, 1876 that the first “long-distance” telephone call was made to Paris from the Bell's home on the outskirts of Brantford. The Brant Public Library holds a scanned copy of one of the oldest surviving complete issues of The Paris Star, from Feb. 11, 1852. Many of the paper's pre-1900 archives were destroyed in a flood at the newspaper office. The Paris Star covers community events that include a busy schedule at the large Paris Fairgrounds, stories from the local schools and county government as Paris is the seat of Brant County. The community has been growing in the last two decades, becoming a popular bedroom community for commuters. Its population is now more than 12,000. The Paris Star has modernized over the years as not just a printed product but providing digital content that gives readers a fast look at what's happening in and around their community via a webpage, Facebook and Twitter.
