At the site of the historic Baker Hotel in St Charles IL, Imperial Crane was hired to assist with removing the existing flagpole assembly which was actually a cell tower disguised to look like a flagpole. To maintain the building’s landmark status with the National Register of Historic Places, a new flagpole was installed in keeping with the original installation dating back to the original construction in 1928.
