Notes from a friend:Kraig writes:
We knew that there had been an hourglass-shaped tower at Calumet Harbor, but when we visited the harbor in early 2002, only the tall observation tower remained. At that time, we had to rush to catch a plane and didn't have to time inquire regarding the fate of the smaller tower. In early 2005, we happened to be in the area again, and this time decided to ask some of the locals if they knew what had become of it. The attentive, young audience in the bar/restaurant in Columbia Park didn't know anything about it. Still willing to suffer further embarrassment, we sought out a more seasoned person and finally found a man who recalled that the tower had been moved a couple of miles south to Fisherman's Road. A short drive proved his recollection to be correct.
