High Point Monument (New Jersey)
Fly By the High Point Monument in Beautiful New Jersey!

This is right near the Huguenot VOR in New Jersey near Sussex (FWN). It is quite majestic when seen from the air.

So many times GA pilots fly by this without even knowing it is there, as on a sectional it is depicted as any other tower obstruction, and not a work of art!

High Point, in Montague, Sussex County, New Jersey, in the Skylands Region, is the highest elevation in the state at 1,803 feet (550 m). It is southeast of Port Jervis, New York. High Point is the highest peak of the Kittatinny Mountains. Three states – New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania – can be seen from the top.

At the peak is the High Point Monument, a 220-foot (67 m) obelisk, built in 1930 as a war memorial.

The Monument on High Point was built to honor war veterans, to be precise.

Master mason Michael Maddaluna began construction of the 220 foot (67 m) tower – which has a base which is 34 square feet (3.2 m2) – in 1928 and completed it in 1930. The outside is made of New Hampshire granite and also Shawangunk quartz. There are four small windows through which observers have a view of the ridges of the Pocono Mountains toward the west, the Catskill Mountains to the north and the Wallkill River Valley in the southeast. The Monument is an obelisk monument similar to other war monuments, such as the one on Bunker Hill in Massachusetts.

Plans were made to close the park as of July 1, 2008 under Gov. Jon Corzine's budget plan for 2009. Veterans groups, who have held an annual memorial at the site, expressed their opposition to the proposal, which was ultimately removed from the final budget.

Please, let's NOT close this monument or remove it. Thank you Veterans.
