Some parts of the old Eagle Tower at Peninsula State Park are helping reconstruct the new Eagle Tower, even if they can’t be used in the new structure. A dozen local artists and carpenters are repurposing old parts of the tower the DNR deemed unusable for the new tower for an auction being held in September to raise money for the Eagle Tower Fund. Rachel Stollenwerk, campaign director and member of the Friends of Peninsula State Park, says the event is offering an opportunity for people to take home some unique history.
Almost $600,000 has been raised to date by the Eagle Tower Fund with the state agreeing to match donations up to $750,000, according to Stollenwerk. The auction will be held in Fish Creek on September 30 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. You can more information on the Eagle Tower Fund below:
