Electronics and Enroachments

Are electronic sites enroaching on tower? Yes
Comments: Has a cut stone spring enclosed and shaped like a house just under the hill where water was gotton for drinking. Really neat. Possibaly only one like it. I was told that the original house was also made of cut stone. I would have liked to have seen it.

Access and Signs

Directions to tower signed? No
Comments? On 421 N. of Hyden, Ky. About 8 mi. to the Lucinda's Knob sign. Turn left up the hill. It is a few miles to the tower. The spring would be hard to find if you didn't know where it was. I guess that is why it is still in good shape.
