The southernmost tower in NJ is Dias Creek Station located on Cape May. At 15’ above sea level it is the lowest elevation lookout in the state. The 60’ Aermotor with 7’x7’ metal cab was built in 1944 and raised to 100’ in 1970. It has recently been put back into service due to the need for prompt fire detection in this rapidly developing area.
