The Moon Towers

Beginning in 1895, more than 30 Moon Towers were erected; 17 remain. Austin is the only city in the nation with a tower system still intact. They are 165 feet tall, each with 6 carbon lamps that illuminate a 3000 foot radius. Keep your eyes up when you drive around at night to see one (Zilker Park, Main Library, Travis Heights, etc.). www.austinpostcard.com/moontower.html
