This tower was located on a hill. Path is accessible. Renovations being done. Closed bathrooms and the inside was closed. Old cemetery across the way.

AT the present you cannot get inside the tower but the views from the tower grounds are great for photography lovers. Signs around the grouds give history of the tower

We didn't know about these towers. The tower was nice and the view was very good. The information center worth the visit. We would have loved to climb the tower for the best view but that wasn't possible

Interesting history on the tower and easily accessible, with great views from the top, but the tower will be reconstructed for preservation for what we understand to be 2 years, 2018 and 2019.
