  • We had a bit of difficulty finding it but were so glad we did. My hubby has bad knees but thankfully the elevator was there and we only had to climb a short amount of steps near the top. Commanding vi...  more »
  • This tower has a commanding view of the surrounding area. When you consider what the militia could see from here it had to be helpful. Our visit was on a rainy day so we could not see what they could....  more »
  • Great view of the area. Elevator takes you almost to the top. Narrow staircase get you to the top of the tower. Small donation is required but worth it for the view out to the Delaware River. Try to c...  more »
  • A great side trip! On our way up to Lambertville, we and our out-of-town guests chose to stop here for a little sight seeing. The view was well worth the $6/person admission! The 125 stairs were really not much for us 40-yr-olds with small children, even on this day of 86 degrees. From the top we could see all the way up the river to our destination!
  • Excellent views of the Delaware and the surrounding area. I'm definitely going to come back in the fall. Loses a star for the elevator being broken... those stairs are exhausting! They should really offer a discount if you have to climb it, but I suppose they need the money to fix the elevator.
  • We climbed the 125 steps to the top. The elevator was not working. The view at the top was well worth the climb.
  • Although there is an elevator, it was out of service the day we visited the tower. The climb up the 124 steps to the observation deck gave us a slight work out, it will be worth it.
  • Nice walk. Historic. Beautiful views.
