Condition

Comments: Obviously a long forgotten tower. This tower may be on private property - a mobile home is located about 100 yards away. Tower is in an extreme state of disrepair - almost didn't see it. Tower is probably a Carnegie Steel tower with Diagonal stairs and is approximately 60 feet in height. The first set of Diagonal stairs is missing the wooden steps, to prevent climbing. Windows are broken out and the wood is very old and rotten looking.
