The World War I memorial atop the highest peak in Massachusetts has earned national recognition.

[post_ads]The Berkshire Eagle reports that the Veterans War Memorial Tower on Mount Greylock has been honored by the 100 Cities/100 Memorials program, jointly run by the World War I Centennial Commission and the Pritzker Military Museum & Library in Chicago.

The museum’s chairwoman, Col. Jennifer Pritzker, who served with the U.S Army from 1974 to 2001, was on hand at a ceremony at the peak this week to present a plaque noting the tower’s inclusion on the list.

The ceremony came a year after the completion of $2.6 million in repairs to the 93-foot monument, whose beacon, in the right conditions, can be seen nearly all the way to Boston more than 100 miles (161 kilometers) away.
