This imposing stone and reinforced concrete tower sits atop Mt. Penn, overlooking the City of Reading and its surroundings. The tower is on Skyline Drive, one mile from Reading’s landmark Pagoda. From the top of the tower there is a 60 mile panoramic view.
Built to serve primarily as a fire observation facility in 1939, the William Penn Memorial Fire Tower on Mount Penn is a brick, concrete and native fieldstone structure with 120 steel steps that twist up to an observation deck that is actually higher above sea level than the Empire State Building.
