WATERVILLE, MAINE, USA

Pretty sure the tallest structure is MILLER LIBRARY, COLBY COLLEGE. You can see it form most parts of town, since it is ontop of Mayflower Hill. Not sure how tall it is though.

The tallest structure in my city (Rzeszˇw, Poland) is the power station chimney (203m):


We don't have very tall buildings, I think the highest are about 50m, but there is the tallest building in the city in the construction right now (Capital towers, 80m):
