Sister Bay, Wis. (May 12, 2020) — The former Door County landmark, Eagle Tower, was constructed in 1932 atop the 180-foot Eagle Bluff in Peninsula State Park, where it stood for 84 years, serving both as a fire lookout and a sightseeing platform until it was finally dismantled in 2016. Generations of Door County residents and visitors braved the 75-foot climb above the treetops to marvel at the swaying, 360-degree panorama, from Ephraim to Horseshoe Island to Nicolet Bay, to the Strawberry Islands and the UP across the waters of Green Bay.
Now available in two sizes: a new Eagle Tower memento has been designed by David Frykman and crafted by Luke and Heather Frykman on Little Sister Puzzle Co.’s own in-house laser machine. The memento piece is available in two sizes: 8.5 in. x 4 in. and 11.5 in. x 5, in. Each tower rests on a fir base repurposed from the salvaged wood of Eagle Tower itself.
For those visitors and residents who climbed The Tower often, it was like losing a friend when it came down; a friend who could lift you up to stand at the treetops, where you could see eagles soaring far below.
