Moved to the Old Sled Works in July 1998, this Forest Fire Lookout Tower (formerly known as the "Dauphin Water Gap Tower") was a fixture for more than 50 years along Routes 22/322, a few miles west of Harrisburg, PA.

The tower had been closed for more than 30 years to foot traffic due to lack of proper maintenance and insurance. Still it remained a visible, outdoor icon for thousands of cars that passed by it each day. Due to a recent highway project, this 110' dinosaur was right in the path of progress and was destined for the scrap yard.

Luckily, a few miles away, owners of the Old Sled Works had the idea of saving the tower and re-erecting it in their parking lot. After months of planning and many bureaucratic hoops, the Duncannon Tower now stands proud for all to see and enjoy. Read a feature article in AntiqueWeek about the tower at Sled Works!

Hours vary for the tower. Please call ahead to see if it is open.
