Tuesday Towers

Tonight I am going to share pictures of towers that I have shared over the years.

Tell es-Sultan - Neolithic Tower - Oldest Tower in the worldI am going to start with a picture of the oldest tower in the world. This is the Neolithic tower at Tell es-Sultan. Tell es-Sultan is better know as Jericho. Of course most people remember Jericho for the walls, but it also has this very old tower that was uncovered.

Newport Tower, Benedict Arnold, Mystries, Templars, VikingsHere is an image from one of my Grandma’s Scrapbooks of the mysterious round tower at Newport, Rhode Island. See my post Newport Tower to see what my theory is for the origin of the tower.

Fuchsturm - Fox Tower - Jena, Germany - Hausberg - Snow Covered Trail - HikingThis tower is in the hills above Jena, Germany. This is known as the Fuchsturm or the Fox Tower. I have been by the tower many times over the years. It has a wonderful restaurant beside it that serves some very traditional food.

Salesforce Tower, San Francisco, New Tallest Building, Iconic buildingsCloser to home is the new Salesforce Tower in San Francisco which was completed in 2018. It is the tallest tower, by roof-line, west of the Mississippi River.

Lookout Tower - Ankerstein - NF10 - Anchor Blocks - Building with stonesI will end with a tower that I built at home using Ankerstein set NF10.

I really like this Lookout Tower.

See Building a Tower for more details.

I hope you enjoyed these towers from around the world.
