Mike Ellington guessed correctly via Facebook. It is the “old” train watch tower located on Broad Street, west of the Five Points intersection. Dale Freudenberger, President of Tamaqua Historical Society, stated it was constructed around 1960. The person inside the watchtower would be in charge of all crossing gates within view in Tamaqua.
