  • Great historical spot. Just wish there wasn't so many semi' s. Someone could get killed. Watch your kids and pets if you visit.
  • Awesome. A little out of the way but worth it. One of the last remnants of an amazing piece of history. Beautiful tower with a great story behind it.
  • Simple monument. Represents the heritage of Dubuque, being lead mining. Worth seeing also it is near the old Star Brewery and river walk which are worth seeing in themselves.
  • Neat to see and learn about.
  • This is a pretty cool place. I was here watching the Dubuque air show. And it was a great vantage point.
