The World's Wonder Tower in Genoa, Colorado is amazingly fabulous! It was first built as a highway stop in 1926, and it's still FANTASTIC today!

I think it should count as a Rural Ruin because when the original owner died in 1942, it was closed and left to continue moldering away. (The moldering had started when new highways bypassed the original road that it had been built on, taking away the tourist trade.) But it's open again, and FULL of cool relics.



If you want to see more, you can take a virtual mini-tour here. (42 pics on 2 pages)
