Kingfisher Tower

Local nameKingfisher Tower
LocationNew York, USA

Kingfisher Tower is a 60-foot-tall folly, built by Edward Clark in 1876, on the eastern shore of Otsego Lake at Point Judith. It is located north of Cooperstown, New York near County Highway 31. The tower was used in a scene in a movie in 1911.

It is a Gothic Revival structure built by Clark "to beautify the lake" and "to provide construction jobs during an economic turndown". Clark made his fortune investing in Isaac Singer's sewing machine company, and the structure now belongs to his descendants. It is on private property and is usually approachable only from the lake. The structure was designed by architect Henry J. Hardenbergh.
