Austin contains 17 of the only surviving light towers in the world. They’re called moonlight towers because the lights give off a sort of artificial moonlight. Built in the 1890s, they are considered Texas State Landmarks and hold a place on the National Register of Historic Places. The light tower in Zilker Park was featured in the film Dazed and Confused, starring Austin resident Matthew McConaughey.
