Generations of care and restoration have kept this beloved landmark from deteriorating due to the test of time.  This year, the torch has been passed down to Allegrone Companies to complete the masonry and structural repairs.

Originally constructed in 1933—and reconstructed in the 1970’s—the Massachusetts Veterans War Memorial Tower is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Mount Greylock Summit Historic District. The interior of this 93-foot tall tower features a memorial chamber on the ground level and a public observation platform on the fifth level. 

DCR awarded the construction contract to Allegrone for this landmark restoration. The repairs will address the tower's long-standing issues with water infiltration, which caused structural damage to the granite stonework when moisture freezes and expands in the cracks during colder months. The first round of repairs involved resealing the exterior, upgrades to the ventilation fans, and the installation of a new dehumidification system.
