Bowman's Hill Tower

A 125 foot tall stone tower located in Washington Crossing Historic Park in Bucks County Pennsylvania. It is administered by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. The tower was built on Bowman's Hill, which is on the dividing line between Upper Makefield and Solebury Township. The tower is 125 feet tall and its base measures 24 feet in each direction. It's a sweet place to take in the beautiful countryside, and it now has an elevator that you can take, which brings you three quarters of the way up Bowman's Tower, and in the fall, particularly October, the fall foliage from this vantage point is not to be missed. There's a flower park across the street as well, which is amazing in the spring.
