1,776 ft Tall Spire and Antenna

The Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, declaring us our freedom. The Spire and Antenna is a symbolic resemblance of the freedom we all have received because of our country. Meaning we stand strong against all other forces, and that we as a country are a strong fighting nation.


An American Flag is draped over the Spire as it is raised up.
