On my Seacoast walks, I’ve been curious about a tower in the town of Rye. I recently learned that it’s a relic of WW2-era coastal defense, as with the old battery sites at nearby Odiorne Point State Park. It even has a name: Pulpit Rock Tower. Now out of commission and owned by the state of New Hampshire, it’s closed to the public except for rare events – and I happened to stumble across one of those events, on what was probably the clearest day of the year. Well done, Friends of Pulpit Rock Tower.
