  • Interesting part of WWII history, and the 'eternal flame' came as a complete surprise behind the tower.

  • The WWII Lookout Tower turns 80 this year and is the last restorable/freestanding WWII tower that was 1 of 15. Built in 1942, it was part of the coastal defense system of the Delaware Bay and River...

  • I've seen these for years here and in Delaware. This is the first time Ive stopped and read the history on them. It's amazing how they did things without electronics.
  • I always wanted to go up in one of these towers. You can let your imagination run wild. Loved it.
