This 65-foot Aermotor tower was built in the late 1950s and features a 7'x7' cab. While the cab is locked, signage allows visitors to climb the tower at their own risk. The tower offers a beautiful view of surrounding farmland, to the valley near Crossville, and across the mountains of the Grandview area. The tower is actively used as of 2019.
