New Tower Atop Mt.Tom

Holyoke Gas & Electric Communications Tower

Pictured is the communications tower which was erected in June by the Holyoke Gas & Electric just north of the Mt. Tom summit. According to the G&E, the tower will further assess wind power resources and attach telecommunications equipment. G&E also plans to lease space on the tower to other telecommunication companies.

The tower as seen from the Mt. Tom summit.

 Entrance road leading to the tower is off the old Mt. Tom Incline Railroad.

 The newly constructed tower is 190 feet high.
