$600,000 needed to repair Leaning Tower of Niles

It could cost up to $600,000 to repair “The leaning Tower of Niles.”

The half-sized replica of the “Leaning Tower of Pisa” originally belonged to a businessman.

But when he died in 1964, it was left to the YMCA under the stipulation that the tower would be maintained and standing until 2059.

In 1996, Niles spent $1.2 million to renovate the tower and grounds.

Last fall, the town placed a fence around the tower’s perimeter to protect people from falling debris.
