Driving by on the interstate I wondered what this dilapidated structure was. We exited and the tower turned out to be a very early roadside attraction that is now closed. Built in the 1926, this 65-foot tower was billed as the tallest structure between New York and Denver. Promoters claimed that you could see six states from the top of the tower. At one time the tower also served as a museum which displayed native American artifacts, antique glass bottles, a two-headed calf, and a pig with 8 legs. Today up close, it looked like a strong wind could blow the tower over. The final two pictures show the tower back in its heyday.
