Wisconsin’s Fire Towers – 1911 to the Present Day
Transcending their original purpose as monumental-scale tools, Wisconsin’s fire towers inhabit a special sense of place for the state’s residents. While the function of towers has shifted over the past 20-30 years from that of key component of the fire protection system to a charismatic landscape anachronism, they remain fixed in memory. These markers recall different stories; from family history related to employment, recreation, or teen-age hijinks to monuments of architectural, environmental, and economic history.  This presentation will discuss the rise and use of fire towers in the state as well as their evolving post-decommissioned function and status. By Ricky Kubicek, Cultural Resource Coordinator for the Wisconsin DNR.
