On Memorial Day, Monday May 28, the Friends of Pulpit Rock Tower, Inc., is again offering tours of Rye’s Pulpit Rock Tower in honor of our fallen military.
Come climb the stairs, learn about the tower’s involvement in WWII and enjoy the amazing views from the newly renovated observation windows. Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and explain further the history and significance of Pulpit Rock Tower.
Pulpit Rock Tower was recently featured on NH Chronicle, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and was selected as one of the “Seven to Save,” a list of seven endangered historic properties worth saving by the NH Preservation Alliance.
The Tower will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is located off Neptune Drive in Rye. Please park on Ocean Boulevard (Route 1A), carefully cross the road and walk down Neptune Drive to the tower access path.
Winding stairs and ladders must be climbed to reach the observation areas. Only those in good health and with good mobility should attempt to climb the tower. Minimum height is 42” – for your safety, no children or pets may be carried and no flip-flops may be worn.
In the event of steady rain, the event will be canceled- please check our facebook page for up-to-date information (https://www.facebook.com/foprt). Suggested (but not mandatory) tax-deductible donation is $5 per person or $10 per family; all proceeds benefit the tower.
