Baltimore: Phoenix Shot Tower( Jed Kirschbaum, Baltimore Sun / August 31, 2005 )
Lead shot for rifles was made in the Shot Tower from 1828 to 1892. Molten lead was dropped from the top of the tower into a vat of cooling water at the bottom. At 234 feet, the Tower was the tallest building in the country until the construction of the Washington Monument in D.C. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1972.
