Construction on Historic Shot Tower Begins
Friday Dec 20th, 2019
Construction on Baltimore’s historic Phoenix Shot Tower in Jonestown has officially begun. DGS is working with contractors on interior renovations and structural improvements that will allow visitors to reach the top. Other work includes electrical and lighting upgrades, as well. DGS Historic Preservation Officer, Jackson Gilman-Forlini, ensures that the historic integrity of the building will remain intact, and that all modifications made to the structure are reversible.
The ultimate goal is to allow visitors to get unique 360° views of Baltimore City!
This project is part of an ongoing effort to revitalize the historic Jonestown neighborhood.
Tours of the ground floor are still ongoing every Saturday and Sunday at 4pm. Go to https://www.carrollmuseums.org/explore/phoenix-shot-tower/ to learn more!
