Bowman’s Hill Tower -New Hope, PA
The 125’ tower was built in 1929-31 of local field stone to commemorate what may have been a lookout for General George Washington. After the tower was built, 28,300 seedlings were planted to reforest the area.
The National Lightning Protection Company of St. Louis, MO had to put a protection system on the building due to the amount of lightning strikes. The system still operates today.
In the 1980s an elevator was installed to take visitors ¾ of the way to the top.
