The tower was built in 1853 under the leadership of the developer of the general plan for the fortifications of Königsberg, chief of the engineering corps Ernst Ludwig von Astaire and was part of the system of city defensive fortifications. She bore the name of the Prussian Field Marshal Friedrich Karl Don, a participant in the liberation war against the Napoleonic invasion. The building is also a World War II monument.
