* (cupola removed-now used as communications tower)

The Ontario MNR has decided, as of 2013, to remove many of these still standing towers. I will be keeping this list as it is though. Please email your area MPP and MP to preserve this part of Ontario's history before it's too late.

ps- Visiting these tower sites is one thing but climbing is another. It is hazardous to try to climb one and that is why the MNR has removed the bottom 20 ft of ladder. The MNR no longer maintains them so please refrain from climbing.
