The view from atop Tampa history

- They're one of the most iconic symbols of Tampa: The silver minarets that top Plant Hall, the historic building formerly known as Henry Plant's Tampa Bay Hotel.

The building, now a part of the University of Tampa, was built in 1891 -- which makes it one of Tampa's oldest. It's the mission of a non-profit group known as the Chiselers to maintain the building's historic character and aesthetic integrity.

The group offered FOX 13's Charley Belcher a rare inside tour of the minarets, and the spectacular downtown view they provide.
