This 70-foot tower is referred to in historical records as a “Baker Latest Rebuilt (1932)” type tower. It appears very similar to the Wisconsin standard tower and features an external cage protected ladder. It was built in 1932.

The tower's original cab burned during the 1950s and was rebuilt the following year.
