The ex PRR tower at Adams, a location on the ex PRR mainline thru Ft. Wayne, IN where a branch line diverted off toward Decatur, IN and on down to Richmond, IN. This tower was demolished sometime in the mid eighties, but it has an interesting story about how that happened. A gentleman who worked for CR out of Ft. Wayne at the time told me that when they went to demolish the tower, they discovered a giant wasps nest that went up and down the entire side of the tower, so they let the Adams township(the place the tower was named after) fire dept. do a controlled burn and they burned it to the ground.
