History:

The SONO Switch Tower Museum tells the great history of the railroad switch tower.
Towers were used by railroads to control areas of track, preventing trains from crashing. They also housed the mechanism for changing trains from one track to another. A tower operator would operate this mechanism by throwing levers that were connected to the tracks, thus changing the direction of the track.
