While the Paradise community dates back nearly 150 years, it is celebrated its 20th year as an incorporated town in 2016.
Located on Texas 114 between Bridgeport and Boyd, Paradise may be one of the smallest towns in Wise County, but it certainly has big heart.
The Paradise Historical Society has preserved the unique history of the area and holds regular meetings with presentations about local history. The society also hosts the Paradise Main Street Festival each year that includes a live auction fundraiser.
