I have written twice now in regard to the mystery tower above Little Antire Creek that showed on several topography maps.
This was called to my attention by Kevin Meyer and Chris Polka.
My second article on the subject noted that I was contacted by Gary Strohmeyer after seeing the piece in the River Hills Traveler.
He remembered the tower as a Scout project and he had climbed it a number of times. It DID exist!
So, with that in mind, I reached out to the St. Louis area Scouts. I received an email from Tim O’Donnell, who coincidentally was working on a book about the Beaumont Scout area.
