OK, so you can only see the tip of it. Hopefully this will someday have BEV coverage.
During the 1930s, Paris Park had temporary bunkhouses that sheltered government workers for the WPA. The bunkhouses were eventually torn down, but the metal frames from the workers' beds remained, stored in barns.

Decades passed. Then, in 1980, high school students from the Mecosta-Osceola Career Center in nearby Big Rapids -- or from Chippewa Hills High School in sort-of-nearby Remus (accounts vary) -- discovered the beds and decided that the metal would make good raw material for an engineering and welding project.

As Dale Cox, the assistant warden of the park, explained to us, "They learned how to chop 'em up." The result is a nice Eiffel Tower replica.
