ROADSIDE MICHIGAN: Michigan’s ‘Eiffel Tower’
In 1980, students decided to turn metal from old beds into a replica of the Eiffel Tower - accordingly and not coincidentally - in Paris, Michigan, at Paris Park.
When you get to Paris, look for the fish hatchery...if you can't see it, you'll probably smell it. The tower is just past the hatchery, but you'll have to get outta the car and walk through the woods for a couple of minutes before you come across it.
I visited this area some years ago and it was an interesting little side trip.
On the other side of the fish hatchery is a carved statue of a Chippewa Indian chief that dates back to 1937.
Just north of the park is a white garage that is - or was - the home of "Dynamite The Circus Clown."
The above pic shows you where Paris is located...It's just another fun "Roadside Michigan" site to check out on your state road trips this summer!
