The first tower of its type ever built in North America; the Prince of Wales Tower is part of the robust Halifax Defence Complex constructed, beginning in the 1790s, to protect British sea batteries from a French landward attack.
The Prince of Wales Tower is a squat round structure built of stone, almost three times as wide as it is high.
