Paris, Illinois To Paris Crossing & Paris, Indiana

Jeffersonville, Indiana

Fairfield Inn ($128)

August 24, 2021

My lack of planning is resulting in some wonderful surprises. Each morning I remind myself that I began this trip with the goal of developing more spontaneity. (That's a tough word to spell correctly). Yesterday it paid off as I visited Universal, Indiana and Deputy, Indiana. I thought I was trying to find an historical (as in no longer there) Paris and ended up finding that Paris is alive and well and has a sister town 1/2 mile away named Paris Crossing. And I topped it off by spending the night in Jeffersonville. I stumbled into Jeffersonville because it was the closest place with a hotel after I had visited the two Paris.'

Jeffersonville is a city in Clark County, Indiana situated along the Ohio River. Locally, the city is often referred to by the abbreviated name Jeff. It lies directly across the Ohio River to the north of Louisville, Kentucky, along I-65. The population was 44,953 at the 2010 census. The city is the county seat of Clark County. The city began its existence as a settlement around Fort Finney some time after 1786, and was named after Thomas Jefferson in 1801, the year he took office.
