You will recall I wrote a piece in The River Hills Traveler recently about a tower that showed on an old topography map.
It sat above Little Antire Creek south of I-44 near several Scout facilities. I have had lots of luck getting answers by putting it out there in the River Hills Traveler.
The email I received was from Gary Strohmeyer, a 40-year River Hills Traveler reader:
“When I was a Boy Scout back in the 1950’s there definitely was a forest tower on the ridge overlooking Beaumont Boy Scout reservation.
