Increasingly in the “tower world,” towers on the move are the current news. You see, slowly but surely, Missouri Department of Conservation Towers are being put up for auction.
However, since the auction price often exceeds the scrap steel price, few are being bought for that. Some are just finding “new homes.”
Even close to 7,000 pounds of concrete per leg can’t hold them down.
One of the more interesting “moves” showed lately in the form of the “Gipsy/Cascade/Goose Pond” Tower, I suppose it would be called.
In 1947-1948 the Missouri Department of Conservation obtained 40 acres near Gipsy, Missouri, and a tower was erected soon after.
