About half of our guesses this time were correct, and about half of the guesses thought that the tower was the tower at the Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich (it's not). The tower is part of the King Arthur Flour Company's headquarters building in Norwich, VT.

from Dave Anderson, who was part of the construction management team on the building...

...the building was designed by Geoff Thornton and Chris Smith of Metz, Thornton and Smith. Bredloaf Construction was the Construction Manager. The timer frame was fabricated and erected by Todd Benson's timber framers (they also did the timber frame for the new Lebanon Food Coop). The building was completed in 1995. The center timber frame which supports the clerestory was assembled and crane raised with a crane as a complete assembly. It looked to us as if we were setting a rocket ready for launch...

The first several correct guesses were submitted by Linda Cosgriff, Connie Snyder, Louise Tyson, Barbara Duclos, Irv Thomae, Tony Dall, Randy Spydell, and Dick Broussard.

Joe Malpino from King Arthur says "This picture was taken at King Arthur Flour's corporate headquarters. The building is called Camelot."
