The same year Clemson College was established.

I did not know that.

Is the Eiffel Tower scheduled to be demolished like local landmark "The Clemson House" was??......:)

Actually, yes. The Eiffel Tower was built for the World Fair to show that it was possible to build a structure that tall, but was only scheduled to stand for 20 years, then be taken apart. But it served as an incredible radio transmitter for use in World War I, so it remained standing, and ended up becoming a huge icon for Paris.

Y'all have any idea how tall the Eiffel Tower is?

It's crazy tall, like a skyscraper; taller than Rockefeller Center, but not quite as tall as the Empire State Building.
