Ethan Allen Tower Posted on September 13, 2016 Updated: September 15, 2016 by dwood The Ethan Allen Tower is closing for the season, earlier than usual, to get much-needed repair work started. Beginning Monday, September 19, at 7am. contractors will begin repointing the stone masonry on the tower. The project is funded by Penny for Parks and is expected to last 6 weeks. We are sorry for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience. We look forward to reopening the new & improved (and safer) Ethan Allen Tower next season.
