Standing watch for years, this original tower is a historic landmark for the airport, Working with only radio and runway lighting, air controllers directed the heavy air traffic of the airfield. This tower did not have radar installed during the war.

The structure is approximately 24 feet square at the base and nearly 60 feet tall. Large glass panels on all four sides of the control room provided full visibility of all airport and airfield operations. A steel roof and access stair top the base of the tower.

A backup generator for tower and communications is in building #428 on the northeast corner o the tower. The equipment in the tower base was vandalized years ago, but restoration of this important structure is planned.
