Elizabeth, Illinois — The view east across the farmland of Jo Daviess County, from the top deck of the Long Hollow Tower, about 4 miles west of Elizabeth and 11 miles east of Galena, Illinois on U.S. Route 20.

The 75-and-a-half-foot tower, built by the Illinois Department of Transportation in 1983-84, has since closed “with no sign of it ever opening to the public.”
