Architectural Tour of Clinton


Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Lighthouses, Riverview Park at River Levee; c. 1935; Leo P. Hannager, Designer; WPA, Builder. Three decorative towers, with the appearance of lighthouses, stand on the levee and mark the edge of the Mississippi River. Each tower is octagonal in plan. The masonry shaft of each tower tapers inward as it rises. Sheet metal roofing covers the small, stylized domes which are over the "open" work of the platform atop the shaft. The lighthouses have been symbols and identifying markers along the river in Riverview Park ever since their construction by the WPA.
