SAVE the Historic Potawatomi Tower!
Please SAVE the Historic Potawatomi Tower!
The Potawatomi Tower is a special place for so many visitors and county residents.
The tower is historically significant as it was the first observation tower built specifically for that purpose. Plus it has been nominated for the State and National Register of Historic Places.
The Sturgeon Bay Historical Society has been working with the DNR toward saving the landmark Tower in Potawatomi State Park.
We are asking DNR Secretary Preston Cole to please take the lead in saving this important icon by simply approving the emergency repairs and stabilization plan.
The report by Dr. Dan Tingley of Wood Research and Development has determined that the main supports to the tower can be saved and repaired.
But time is of the essence! These repairs must be done this fall before the winter winds and excessive snow loads do more harm to this neglected structure.
We need your help now!
