High Point Monument – High Point State Park | New Jersey Photograper

The War Veterans Monument

The monument was built to honor war veterans, through the generosity of the Kuser Family of Bernardsville, NJ. Master Mason Michael Maddaluna began construction of the tower in 1928 and completed it in 1930. At the top of the 220 foot (67 m) structure (the base is 34 square feet (3.2 square meter). There are four small windows through which observers have a spectacular view of the ridges of the Pocono Mountains toward the west, the Catskill Mountains to the north and the Wallkill River Valley in the southeast. At the top of New Jersey’s tallest knob, the Monument is an obelisk monument similar to other war monuments, such as the one located on Bunker Hill in Massachusetts. The High Point monument was used as the Dark Lord’s tower in the comedy film “The Gallstone.”

oneshotbeyond - the 2nd shot blows my mind Jen…the dark processing gives it so much depth. The way the sun flare strikes across the structure is so unique and brings the viewer right in as if they were standing in front of the tower! Way to go!
