About Paramount

Established in 1946 with the purpose of facilitating social interaction and friendship among tall men and women, The Paramount Tall Club is one of the founding members of the American Affiliation of Tall Club (now Tall Clubs International). We are proud of our tall heritage. Most events are open to the public.
