|Bill Lightfoot by Ginger Sisco Cook|
They left their mark of beauty and elegance on the landscape of Paris. One of their finest examples of work is the Paris City Hall and Fire Station designed in 1920.
A few of the firm's accomplishments over the ninety years of practice include the original structures of: Paris City Hall and Fire Station, Paris Junior College, St. Joseph's Hospital, McCuistion Hospital, UARCO Inc. Printing Plant, Holiday Inn, North Lamar ISD campus, A. M. Aiken Elementary School, Aerofit Fitness Center, Ruth Hall of Holy Cross Episcopal Church, Calvary United Methodist Church and the restoration of the Paris Community Theater, rennovation of the Lamar County Courthouse District Courtroom, the Paris Public Library addition, and Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church addition. I must also mention the Lamar County Courthouse District Courtroom renovation after it burned, the Market Square, the Paris Public Library addition, the Our Lake of the Lake Catholic Church addition and the Region VIII Service Center in Mt. Pleasant.
For Bill's retirement, I put together an exhibit of my photography of his work on Saturday, December 2, 2006. The exhibit was at the Lightfoot Building at 12 First Street NE, Paris, Texas. It was one of the most fun and gratifying projects I have ever undertaken. Bill and I would drive around Paris and he would point out the buildings and tell me stories about how they each came about. We laughed a lot. I should have recorded it and taken more notes. You never know when you will not have the chance to do something again.
