This 81-foot Pittsburgh-Des Moines windmill-style tower is one of the only examples of its type in the United States. An octagonal cab is attached to the top of the tower where a windmill would otherwise be mounted.
There is a second set of concrete anchors on the site from a previous tower that was built in 1924 and removed in 1935.
