Reaching almost 100 feet tall, the observation towers built during the World War II era can still be found along the shores of Delaware today.
These concrete towers were part of America's coastal defense system during the war as a measure to protect the bay and coastal towns of the area from enemies.
Today, these 65-year-old towers no longer serve a purpose except to stand tall and preserve the memories, hardships and sacrifices of a generation who went to war.
One tower found in the Cape Henlopen State Park, known as Fire Tower #23, was recently restored and allows visitors a panoramic view of the Cape it once defended.
