  • Very cool revolutionary War Era tower. For a small fee you can climb the 200 or so stairs to the top. It has a dungeon-y feel until you get to the top. From there is a beautiful 360 degree view! We were even greeted with a fly by from a hawk.
  • Great view with easy access to the tower. The climb up the tower is not too difficult, but a bit tight at the end (tight spiraling stairs). There is an elevator that goes up to the start of the spiral stairs, but it was out of order so check in advance. But, the views are amazing and well worth it, especially in Fall when there's great color.
