East Stroudsburg Railroad Tower

Built in 1908, the East Stroudsburg Railroad Tower remains the last wooden tower still standing along the Lackawanna Rail Line, which was originally part of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad.

In its glory days, those in the tower controlled the switches and signals on the main tracks between Broad and Federal streets, according to the East Stroudsburg Railroad Tower Society website esrrtower.org.

Today, the tower is a museum. For information, visit the East Stroudsburg Railroad Tower Society website, esrrtower.org.

Operators are seen peering out from the tower during its former years.

 

The tower is shown about 40 year ago as the sun sets in East Stroudsburg.
