The Hashawha Tower
The Hashawha Tower is a windmill that was donated to the Hashawha Bear Branch Nature Center here. It is about 35 feet tall and there are pegs on the side to climb up on. There is a very small observation deck at the top, about 9 square feet. The tower is very stable, however, because it is bolted into the concrete below. It stands outside of the Algonquin Building, in the parking lot.
