  More on the Twin Towers

Ed Kelley lived on Brighton Hill when the Michigan Observation Company wanted to build tower next to his property. He told the Michigan Observation Company how he felt but a tower that was 50 feet tall.

Ed Kelley decided to built his own tower, identical tower except taller. Ed Kelley's tower was 60 feet tall.
The Michigan Observation Company added 14 feet to its tower so Ed Kelley added another 4 feet to his tower, making both towers even at 64 feet.
