Pretty impressive replica. Located in local Niles YMCA. You can see it from far away as you enter the Niles city.

Very cool. It looked like you would have the ability to go in and climb up to the top but when we went it was locked up. No specification on hours or explanation on why it was built. It's actually on the same lot as a YMCA.
