HistoryThe entrance is at 29th Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard. It was entered on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. The tower of memories is a seven-story modernistic building. A Gothic structure was began in 1926, but the company failed in 1928. Later, architects William and Arthur Fisher were commissioned to continue the construction, but World War II caused further delays. The theme was modernistic and made of reinforced concrete. Finally in 1948 architect John Monroe was hired to complete the building. He increased the height and added a stairway, but did not change the basic design of the building. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places (5JF467) August 20, 1987.
