  • You cannot go inside the tower so it's not really a place to "visit". The shot tower is historic and makes a fine photo op for tourists. Visible from the river walk.  more »
  • We had to see the shot tower. We could walk around it and stare at the height but that was about it.  more »
  • Did not know what this was and we needed to kill time before some stores opened so went to check this out. It is very tall when you are standing and looking up.  more »

  • Its a really cool historic site but don't worry about getting up close. The city needs to do a small renovation of the site,and it would make a huge difference.
  • The history is far more interesting than the site. Visible from a ways away and depending on your location you don't really need to bother stepping up close. I wish the city would expand its river walk to include this site. Maybe even renovate the inside and offer public entrance. At the moment it seems like a forgotten artifact.
  • Really cool historic landmark with signs right by it to show how it was used.
  • Really cool to see and learn about
  • Interesting history
