The Eiffel Tower of Paris, TN

The Eiffel Tower of Paris, TN

Paris, TN might be known for two things by casual visitors: The wordls largest catfish fish fry, and having a replica Eiffel tower. If you are travelling on Highway US 79 or US 641, look for the small sign on Memorial drive which will point the way. This 1:20 scaled tower was built by students at Christian Brothers University and given to the city in 1992. Engineering students built the 60 foot replica in 1990 for the yearly Memphis in May festival which was highlighting France that year.
