Marker Text This Paris landmark was built between 1908 and 1910 for the family of prominent businessman Rufus Fenner Scott, Sr. (1848-1932). Designed by German-born architect J. L. Wees, who is responsible for many of the town's civic and commercial buildings, the Scott Mansion exhibits a combination of art nouveau and Dutch renaissance styling. A survivor of the Paris fire of 1916, it stands as a significant reminder of the area's growth in the early twentieth century. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1984
