The way of the Wind is a strange, wild way.
Ingram Crockett (1856- ?)

The wind is a part of Molossia, a constant song that plays across the stark, beautiful landscape. It cannot be fought, it cannot be resisted, it must be accepted and even welcomed, acknowledged as a powerful factor in everyday life here.

And so we build this tower, as an ongoing project dedicated to the wind and the desert and as a symbol of our nation.

In early 2006 XXIX the Tower was moved from its original location to the Geographical Center of Molossia. The Tower complex, consisting of several decorative items and much red lava gravel, was also moved. The decorative items were restored upon the establishment of the new Tower complex, and the gravel was used to cover a new path to the North Gate of Norton Park. In May 2006 XXIX the new Tower complex opened once again to stand tall upon the Molossian landscape.
