A Little History on the Irish Hills Towers: The now-closed Irish Hills Towers were among Lenawee County's most prominent attractions in the 20th century. Whether they can be restored and escape demolition will be taken up again by Cambridge Township officials in March, 2015. Historical significance: The first tower was constructed in the summer of 1924 and opened in October that year. Within months, the second tower was constructed just across the property line by a neighbor upset over the other observation platform being built so close to his land. Both towers were among the first tourist attractions in the Irish Hills and proved popular for many years, particularly because of the rivalry between the land owners. The wooden structures were acquired by the Boglarsky family in 1976 and were operated until the end of the 2000 summer season, when the family closed them to the public. The towers were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007. Now The township board has granted numerous extensions to the society and Boglarsky to make repairs that would remove the twin structures from the township's “dangerous buildings" list. In the fall, Boglarsky secured a $50,000 loan from OSB Community Bank against personal property to help fund ongoing renovations. Open windows and doors were recently patched up, support beams inside were replaced, and, in 2013, the towers' rotting platform tops were removed and capped. Other sources of funding have not been secured, however. Boglarsky said two grants the society applied for over the past few months were denied. The society was also forced to pass on a “lengthy" grant application through the state office of historical preservation, Boglarsky said.

Xcellent Brew

I brewed this with an extra 1 lb of corn sugar which brought it up to 6% alcohol with no change in taste, very tasty beer I love it, will buy again!
