The WWII Submarine Watchtower

This watchtower was used as a lookout to spot German subs during WWII. According to Cape May County Park employees, a sub was spotted and sunk in Delaware Bay. Supposedly it’s still there to this day they say… The tower is completely inaccessible at this time, however there are plans to renovate it and open it to the public by 2007.

    Howdy! Nice pics of the tower in cape may.There are actually more of them in the area.From the cape may/lewes ferry you can see at least four others. There’s even one built into a hotel in another area of cape may.You can see it from the street.It sticks out of the roof!
