The 30 foot high tower is located atop the highest hill in the mid-Cape. Indian legends tell of the making of both Scargo Hill and Scargo Lake. Views may be seen of the entire lower cape to Provincetown, and as far west as Plymouth.
There have been three Scargo towers in this same spot. The first tower was made in 1874, created by the Tobey family. The tower was constructed out of wood, however it was destroyed by a gale in 1876. The second tower was also made of wood and burned down in 1900. The second tower was also known as "Tobey Tower" in the name of the Tobeys. Today the third tower is still holding strong, built out of cobblestone, and created in 1901 for a memorial to the family of the Tobeys. The tower stands thirty feet high. It is located on the highest hill of the Mid-Cape region. From the tower, one can see almost all of Cape Cod on the bay side, including Provincetown and the Sagamore Bridge.
