This tower is located on the summit of Mt. Battie in Camden Hills State Park, Camden, Maine. Cars can drive to the top of the mountain and park in a small lot; it is then a short walk to the Memorial tower which looks out onto Penobscot Bay.

The Mount Battie Association
Perhaps Maine's most well-known World War I memorial, the 26-foot tall stone Mount Battie Memorial Tower was erected at the summit in 1921 in honor of the men and women of Camden who took part in the war effort during World War I. The memorial was built on the site of the former Mt. Battie Club House, and some of the stones from the Club House were used to construct the memorial.
