Halls Tower is an abandoned 16-story concrete tower located in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. The Hall’s tower (originally named Carillon Tower) was designed as a dream home for family of former Silver Spring Twp. businessman John P. Hall. The abandoned Hall tower may be seen while driving along I-81 or Route 114.
John Hall started construction in 1981 and spent over $2 million to complete the project.

Later he was sentenced to 27 months in federal prison, and two years of probation in 1998 after having plead guilty to bankruptcy fraud
In 1995 Halls tower was purchased by Silver Tower Inc. But a massive fire took place back in 1995 and destroyed most of the Hall mansion interior. Since the site became completely abandoned. There were rumours that an urban explorer even died after falling 10 stories inside the elevator shaft.
