This 100-foot tower features an inside corner ladder. Mosinee Tower sits along Ranger Street within the City of Mosinee, adjacent to a former Wisconsin DNR Ranger Station. Built in 1951, Mosinee tower was staffed intermittently during spring fire season until 2015 when Wisconsin decommissioned its lookout network.
