Water Department
Water Tower and farmers' market 100 block E. Washington Ave. 1889-1920
Constructed to maintain pressure in the city's mains. 125 feet tall 60,000 gallons of water. The water tower was soon criticized for its unsightliness because it marred the view of the Capitol. A 1903 study showed the structure suffered from some potentially dangerous defects. The tower was razed because it was an eyesore.
