another odd Ocean State tower. This one is just an observation tower, built in 1937 and used during WWII, in case the Germans got up to anything nefarious in Narragansett Bay.
*Perhaps the higher number takes into account the tower plus the elevation of MacSparran Hill? Or perhaps someone, somewhere, was just plain wrong? Or maybe Rhode Islanders simply like that sort of thing, which would explain why the town of South Kingstown includes a village named Kingston.
