Description

This tower was built in 1945 by AT&T to replace a former state fire tower that had been on the same location. AT&T uses the large cab on the top of the tower for communication equipment. The cab from the previous tower was relocated to a lower level and used by PA DCNR staff for fire monitoring as needed.
