A Towering Tribute Bancroft Tower in Worcester, MA was designed to look like a miniature Romanesque castle. Made of natural stone and granite, it is 56 feet high. It was erected in 1900 in honor of George Bancroft: Worcester native, Secretary to the Navy, Founder of the U.S. Naval Academy and U.S. Minister to Great Britain and Germany.

That is one fancy place. Bancroft certainly had a long busy life.
Makes me tired even thinking of all the stuff Bancroft did! 😉
Beautiful tower and the tree colors were at their height!
This looks like a fabulous place to visit. Your pictures are beautiful, especially with all the fall colours.
Thank you so much! It hasn’t been the most colorful fall in New England, so I was really glad to catch this on the day I did.
Gorgeous tower, the architectural work with the rocks is awesome; the autumn colors adds even more beauty!
It’s a great little “castle”. So much fun for New Englanders to visit. I wonder if my European followers are chuckling a bit, because I’m making so much out of something they can find in their environment fairly easily! 😉
The stonework and the autumn colours really do set each other off beautifully.
Thank you, and thank you so much for visiting and commenting! I always look forward to your posts, and am astonished at the details in words and photography. Wishing you a good vacation, with photos if you wish, or just relaxing for a change.
I enjoy visiting and seeing your vibrant photos of your beautiful region and garden. Thanks for the kind wishes. Sometimes it is good to put the camera down but I find using the camera can be quite a meditative practice. We do intend to have a peaceful and relaxing time, thanks. With best wishes from SA.
