French Town Murals

Around the corner from the French statues is a wall painted with a mock French business district, good for photo ops (gravel paths even lead up to the doors so you can pretend you're about to step inside)

French-Themed Statues

The town of Versailles is proud of its French heritage (even though its residents pronounce its name Vur-SALES). There are two French-themed statues downtown. One, of a seated painter, is titled, "Monet the Impressionist" and is in the public square. Just to the west, on the southeast corner of West Main and Hwy 185/West Street, is a statue of three cherubic-looking boys and a large wine barrel. The Monet statue was sculpted by Gary Lee Price and dedicated on April 27, 2005.
