Since 1877, Hot Springs Mountain Tower has been the Hot Springs landmark. Enoch Woolman erected the original 75-foot observatory. When lightning and fire destroyed the structure, a second tower was built. The 165-foot steel structure, later named the Rix Tower, stood for over 60 years. Following years of coordinated efforts between the community and the National Park Service, the new Hot Springs Mountain Tower opened to the public in 1983. This 216-foot superstructure affords a breathtaking panorama-encompassing 140 miles- of beautiful Hot Springs, the Ouachita Mountains and the surrounding Diamond Lakes area. It's a great way to start off or end a day of sightseeing in beautiful Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas.

Hot Springs Mountain Tower is located atop Hot Springs Mountain in the National Park. To reach the Tower, turn off Central Avenue (State Highway 7) in Downtown Hot Springs onto Fountain Street and follow the signs to the Tower.
