Since the publication of my book I have had several towers thought to be long gone show up. 

After reading my book he started the thought process of maybe putting it back up. He has started at the base, a good place to start, and is checking out what might be needed to set the footings, or piers.

It will now be up to the new owners to decide its future. The Aermotor Company had given the towers a 100-year “life span” and some are now approaching that limit and in need of major work. 

Use vs. costs are increasingly becoming a part of the equation. Tower enthusiasts like me are increasingly seeing the future of the towers challenged. 

The rumor is that more tower/acreage sales may be in the works.
