Wonder View Tower.

Wonder View Tower

On private land. Shabby and decaying. It helps to realize how different life was: cars must have been moving slowly for the original owner to identify the car license plates in advance.

[BL-EV, 04/25/2024]

The dirt road (Old Highway 24) that passes by the Wonder Tower still slows traffic considerably. There was talk soon after the death of the Tower owner in 2013 that it would be maintained, but that obviously has not happened.
