Description
- At the time of its completion, this was one of the tallest, freestanding lattice towers in the world.

- To make the tower a landmark, 2000, 25 watt lights were installed on the tower in October of 1963, and was coined the "Milwaukee's Tower of Light."

- The lights were used until the energy crisis of the 1973-74, when the viwers suggested that they be turned off.

- The lights were finally removed in 2003.
