A glimpse inside the Research Tower (c. 1955). The Tower served as a hub of innovation and the birthplace to some of the world’s most beloved household products, including Raid (1955), Glade (1956), Off! (1957) and Pledge (1958).
The unique taproot core design of The Tower illuminated by the sunset. Features of the Tower include a round elevator, 17.5 miles of Pyrex tubes windows, and alternating cantilevered floors and round mezzanines that look down onto the floor below.
The Research Tower stands 153 feet high with 232 stairs that climb 15 stories.
