FOREST CITY, Iowa –   It’s a makeover of sorts for an area state park.

Contracting crews are working at Pilot Knob to help restore the tower.

It was built almost seventy years ago, and is now getting some touch-ups.

A new cement seal cap is being applied along with sandblasting the graffiti off.

Mark Johnson, with Artisan Restoration, says it’s an honor to be part of this project.

“To me it’s very rewarding work. It’s somewhat challenging getting the concrete up to the top of the tower,” said Johnson.

“Artisan Restoration” from Minnesota is the crew on the job.

The company does a lot of historic restorations for the Iowa DNR.

Construction is set to be finished by the end of next week.
