The place is being restored so you don't get to see it all...sadly. If you don't have the time for the tour at least find a parking space and look at it.

We walked to the Shot tower because we could see it from everywhere. Well, heck! It sure is tall! And - really interesting "what is it." I'm not going to tell you - but - read. Again: I was not...

This is a quick side-trip but you should stop and read the plaques because it is so unusual. After seeing it from afar so many times, it was nice to go up and take a good long look.
