Tower of History

A tower looking into Canada and the area's history.

[Klint Kendrick, 05/22/2020]

The Tower was built in 1968 as the "Shrine of the Missionaries." Then the Catholic Church lost faith in the project and gave the Tower to the city, which gave it a new name. The Tower contains historical exhibits and an elevator to its observation deck on the 21st floor.
