A Symbol of Florida, the Singing Tower rises 250 feet on the slope of Iron Mountain (324 feet altitude), now a Mountain Lake Sanctuary, established as a retreat for man, a refuge for birds and a sylvan setting for the Singing Tower by Edward Wm. Bok (1889-1930), Pulitzer Prize Winner and editor of Ladies' Home Journal. He is buried in a crypt at the base of the Tower.
Here on Iron Mountain the Indians of Central Florida held their ceremony of the Rising Sun each spring. A large stone circled by 13 smaller stones, representing the sun and the 13 moons of the Indian year, has been found there.
