Some remnants of the iconic Eagle Tower will remain within the property of Peninsula State Park. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has already started looking through the wood that remains from Eagle Tower after it was torn down earlier this year. According Rachel Stollenwerk campaign director for the Eagle Tower Fund Committee, the DNR wishes to use the old wood from the tower to create more signage within the park, since they will not be using it to help rebuild the tower.
This is a win-win situation for both Peninsula State Park and the Eagle Tower Fund Committee. The park will be able to keep the wood that has been on the property for years, to use not only for signage but also for educational purposes, teaching visitors more about the history of Eagle Tower and its legacy.
