Several around here too-one about 5 miles from me and was another up at Pumpkin about 12 miles east that they layed down with a big crane and it sat there for years before someone came in and cut it up for scrap. I wanted to buy it and set it up on my place but the cost of the crane and moving it was waay too much for my pocket.

Great pics. I can't help but look at pics like these and think of the work that went in to them--especially ones like the brick building. I seen lots of them riding a train across Texas one time--on a train, you see the back side of people's lives--kinda like driving down an alley behind a subdivision full of fancy houses all neat and pretty in the front and full of all kinds of stuff in the back along the alley, where nothing much drives but the trash pick up truck.
The dust of our lives that we leave behind....

Lot of people want those towers now. You can't get one for much under 25000$.

Seems like it would be awfully expensive dismantling a tower, hauling it to your location and putting it back up. Might be worth that "delivered and installed".
