Mountain Tower reopens on Washington Island

You will have one more place to check out on Washington Island if you are visiting this Memorial Day weekend. The Town of Washington announced on Thursday that additional work done on Mountain Tower has been completed and visitors can check out the entire structure. Mountain Tower was closed last Tuesday in order for repairs to the second level of the tower to take place.  The work had been years in the making after the tower had to be closed in 2020 because of the need for repairs. In late 2021, the Town of Washington electors purchased the necessary land around the tower and earmarked $100,000 for repairs to be made to save the structure. Repairs to the supports and the first level of the tower were completed late last summer. The town specifically thanked the public, their crews, Town Supervisor Martin Andersen, and Sun Valley Enterprises for their assistance in making the project a reality.
