Peak Drive, Meriden, Connecticut, United States. Castle Craig Tower stands 32 feet high on 976-foot East Peak in Meriden’s Olmsted designed Hubbard Park. Castle Craig, dedicated in 1900 and given to the people of Meriden by Walter Hubbard is part of the 1,800-acre Hubbard Park named after Hubbard. From the top of the observation tower, 1,002 feet elevation, it is possible to see New Haven and Long Island Sound to the south. To the west, the foothills of the Berkshires are visible; to the north, the Hartford skyline as well as the summit of Mount Tom in Massachusetts.The inspiration for the tower’s design has been disputed for years. Some say Walter Hubbard, a world traveler, was inspired by a Norman French tower; others by a 12th Century Turkish tower on the Danube; still others maintain that it was patterned upon an ancient tower in Craigellachie, Scotland. www.ctmq.org An aerial video of Castle Craig located in Meriden, Connecticut for more information please visit the link below. connecticutmag.com/Blog/History/September-2014/Castle-Craig-Offers-Towering-Views-of-Fall-Foliage/ Shot with DJI Phantom 2 GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition Edited in FCPX Graded with LUT
