Located just west of Atlantic City, NJ, McKeetown Fire Tower was first a wooden and iron braced tower built by the coast resort water department in 1917. The state built this 80’ Aermotor tower with 7’x7’ metal cab in 1924. In 1946 a 20’ addition was clamped to the top, raising the tower to its current 100’.
