Description
In West Paris, as in many Oxford County communities, it is not the pleasant farm and woodland scenery but what lies beneath it that is of consuming interest. Oxford County is one of Maine's richest sources of minerals, harboring such gemstones as tourmaline, beryl, rose and smoky quartz, amethyst and aquamarine.
Many mines and quarries have been yielding their treasures since the late 1800s. Snow Falls Gorge, 2 miles south on SR 26, includes walkways around the scenic falls as well as picnic facilities.
