This 50' steel tower, first operated in 1916, was moved here from Dighton. After the move, a 12' extention was added along with replacement of the old ladder with spiral stairs. The tower was situated on private land with the owner's permission until 1922 when the land was officially purchased. In 1931, a new 68' tower was built to replace the older one. In 1946, a new cab was built along with the addition of 2-way radios. In 1955, the U.S. Army ordered the tower removed for National Security reasons. The tower was removed in June 1955 and moved 3 miles south to Long Hill.
