Found in the center of the city near the Boyla's Court, the Drum Tower sported red beams, a black-tiled roof, and shining brass fittings. The tower stood three stories high. A large drum hung from rafters at the top of the tower.
The drum tower was used to rouse the militia, served as a fire alarm, and announced special proclamations occurring in the courtyard below. The Master of the Drum lived in quarters found at the base of the tower.
