Re: [coldwarcomms] Re: Cannonball still standing tall
- Its in a state forest in Savoy, MA which is east of Adams, MA. Its basically off a main drag. I had help from a fellow list member in locating it. When he was there, all the dishes were still on the ground, however all the WU stuff it gone, but the tower is still there with a MA DEP dish and the original building. If the gate is closed, its a steep walk up the road. I have pic if you want it.
