The Tower of History (formerly called 'The Shrine of the Missionaries') is a very distinctive landmark that rises up over 200 feet in the 'Soo' (Michigan side) with three terrific viewing levels (one enclosed and two open). From here one can see for many miles in all directions as well as overlook the international twin cities of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan and Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. We watched the famous Soo canals in operation and saw a giant 1000ft.-long freighter, heading downbound, pick up supplies from a tender mid-river and then motor off into Lake Huron. I could have stayed up there all day! The base of the tower has a museum area devoted to the Chippewa First Nations and the missionaries who came to the area to spread the Word. All very fascinating and the view was simply superb!
