Murney Tower

Murney Tower

Murney Tower is a Martello tower in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, whose construction dates to 1846 and the Oregon crisis. While officially designated as Murray Tower, locals call it Murney Tower, as it was built on Murney Point (which was owned by the Murney family at the time). The Murneys have since relocated to the Cobourg area. Eventually the fort's name was changed to coincide with local usage.
