Visit Tower Hill State Park to see how lead shot was made in the mid-1800s, hike challenging bluff trails and enjoy panoramic views. Tower Hill is a seasonal park open from mid-May through Columbus Day weekend each year. The wooden shaft and the smelter house at the top, originally built in 1831, have been rebuilt and displays show how shot was made when the tower was in operation. A picnic area, hiking trails, canoe landing and a 11-site campground are also available.
