(Former) High Knob Summit Tower
I know tower shots never recieve high marks on SP but it is what it is. I must admit I've seen uglier. 10-8-06

***Tragically, on Halloween 2007, the historic tower was set aflame and destroyed by arsonists. Work began on a new stone and steel tower in July 2013 and is due to be completed sometime in 2014.***

Honestly I haven't been back since I posted this. Why in the heck would you burn a tower?! It was a nice spot, that's a shame. Do you know how long ago it happened?

Not sure. There were even photos online of the tower in flames (at night). Fire crews were unable to save it.

Unless, of course, I have this one mixed up with another fire tower.

Did a bit of searching and discovered that a new stone tower is being built on the site. Work started July of last year and should be done soon!

Well, that's good to hear! I hope they used the same plans.
