  • We were devasted to find that this is closed due to lack of funding. Apparently it receives no funding except from the small town nearby, which can no longer afford to maintain it.  more »
  • The view from the tower is nice as long as you don't look in the direction of the refinery! The river confluence is on one side, and the refinery is on the other. It was something different to do, and...  more »
  • My husband and I made our first visit to the confluence tower yesterday. We live in the area, but we had never visited the tower. The day was clear and the temperature was not too hot...a perfect day ...  more »

  • Weird monument. Looks super out of place, but has a great view. They have cool 4th of July events where you can go up and see fireworks from every city. Bike trails are nice around here too, but difficult to ride to with construction around 111.
  • Good views and informative guides. Not funded by the broke state, rather by the City of Hartford. Handicap accessible and a good place to take school-age children. Restrooms locked when not business hours.
  • It was fun to see and take the tour up. Some local volunteers run the shop and the tour, so it was fun to hear what they had to say. The view up there is nice, but it feels like it would be better if the tower was a bit closer to the river.
  • One quick fact: This is not a state-owned facility and is actually local. I enjoyed the quick tour which was just enough information. The guide was very energetic and answered questions well enough. I'm not fond of heights but the view from the highest point is amazing seeing the meeting of two rivers. Good stop along the river road. The tour was $6/ea for adults and was just a few minutes.
  • The host we had that day was just a love to see she knows he stuff I would go back just to see her and here the things she had to say she was a great .I think here name was miss Paterson
