This historic fire tower sits near the state headquarters of the Florida Department of Agriculture not too far from downtown. Historically, towers similar to this one were used all over the state as an early warning system for wildfires. Now with technology such as satellites, GPS devices and cell phones, as well as continuing development, the observation towers are no longer needed to spot wildfires. The state has been selling off many of the towers to private individuals, but some state, county and privately owned towers still stand.
