In 1881, a 237-foot (72 m)-tall moonlight tower was erected in San Jose, California, making it the first city to be illuminated by an electric light west of the Rocky Mountains. The tower was at Santa Clara and Market Streets, and stood until it collapsed in a storm on Dec. 3, 1915. In 1977, a nearly half-sized replica (shown in a photo on the right) was constructed at the San Jose Historical Museum, also known as History San José, located at 1650 Senter Road, San Jose. The replica tower is 115 feet (35 m) tall. It is located approximately 3.2 miles (5.1 km) from the original location.
