I Hope The WFEA-AM Towers Are Still Up

Is there a New Hampshire state historical marker on Route 3 in front of 
that tower, or am I dreaming? If there isn't, there ought to be; I 
would say the tower is certainly of historical significance.  It's 
pretty darned impressive, and widely known to broadcasting buffs. 

I saw the WLW tower once when I was a kid.  HUGE.
