Visitors will have rare access to the observation deck of this tower, which commemorates the arrival of Pennsylvania-Germans to Waterloo Region c. 1800, and built partly as a goodwill response to anti-German sentiment during the First World War. Its random-coursed fieldstone construction, tapered Swiss copper roof and Conestoga wagon weathervane reflect the origin and farming lifestyle of these early settlers.
