Heck yes it's iconic. Also attractive. I like the lil feller but now I like it even more knowing they didn't forget to make it a lighthouse too.

Quote:
The tower in day light (1959 )The Aloha Tower is a lighthouse that is considered one of the landmarks of the state of Hawaii in the United States. Opened on September 11, 1926

It was built in the Hawaiian Gothic architectural style
Who even knew there was an Hawaiian Gothic?

Aloha Tower Cammie


Was the tower used to send signals to ships in the harbor?


As a lighthouse (of sorts)

For being iconic there are these two also, (please note that there is no offense intended by putting these on the same post.)

The Mitchel S.D. Corn Palace was interesting when I was there, and so was Wall Drug, huge place to visit hard to see it in one day. And of course we can not forget Lady Liberty.
