  • Just stumbled upon and decided to see what it was about. Very interesting what its for. It only takes a few minutes to check out but glad we did as i never heard of shot towers before. 
  • This is a great piece of history to see. It is a quick stop, but worth it. You can't go inside, but the outside is amazing to view. 
  • Structure is part of a unique history and was worth the ten minute stop - and that is more than enough time. In an industrial area, no opportunity to go inside, so the payoff is somewhat limited, but ...  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
