About Austin's Moonlight Towers
Erected in the 1890s, Austin's Moonlight Towers are an ingenious system that illuminated the nights of the Texas capital in the early days of electricity.
They still bathe Austin in artificial moonlight from dusk till dawn. Six lamps at the top of each tower create the famous moonlight glow.
Today, 17 of the original 31 towers remain. They are official Texas State Landmarks and are listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
The Moonlight Towers have been beloved by Austinites for generations.
