Murney Tower, Kingston (must see)
A “rapid removal” roof was later added to protect the gun and keep out the large amounts of snow that did not figure into the mediterranean design of the tower. This is a common feature on Canadian Martellos. Murney Tower is a National Historic Site of Canada, managed and maintained by the Kingston Historical Society, who operates it as a military museum during the summer months (May - End of August). Displays include cannons, uniforms, Lee Enfields, and other mid 19th century military artifacts.
