Milwaukee erects mini Eiffel Tower outside City Hall (VIDEO)

To honor the 129 victims of the Paris attacks who lost their lives and to show support for France, the city of Milwaukee constructed a 40-foot Eiffel Tower outside of the City Hall.

Kim Morris, Executive Director of East Town Association, which owns the tower, said Milwaukee has a French community and she believes at this time it’s important to show respect. The mini tower, she said, was a great way to do it and came at the request of numerous residents. Once the tower was completed, a prayer vigil was held for the victims.
