After nearly two years of vacancy for the old Ward’s restaurant building, a new family has come into town, hoping to restore the locale’s former glory with their own twist. The new facility, to be called Paris Sports Bar and Grill after the original name of the restaurant, will feature an open concept and a family friendly location to watch sports games.

The new location will replace Ward’s, which remained closed since an electrical fire caused significant damage to the building in August 2019. The new owners, however, have already created a plan to repair, restore and remodel the old building.
