Bowman's Hill Tower

-A A +A
1930, G. Edwin Brumbaugh. Off PA 32 at Lurgan Rd., Upper Makefield Twp.

Bowmans's Hill Tower was built of the local brownstone with a hint of Gothic detail by one of the state's early restoration architects. It has been updated with an elevator, but it is still possible to climb to the top of the 125-foot-high tower, which provides a fine view of the region and Washington Crossing Historic Park.
