Our First Church
Paris Idaho was settled in the fall of 1863. Two years later a building used for church, school and recreation was erected by James Nye and others, of logs hauled from George Sirrine's sawmill. It was 20' x 60 with two large rooms and a stage at one end. Later an annex, balcony and belfry were added. In 1870 the First Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was organized, Henry D. Horne Bishop. Thomas Sleight and Louis Ricks taught school. This bell rang for assembly until 1942.
