Facts

  • As well as serving as Lansing's first water tower, the tower was also a public observation tower. The top was reached by climbing an exterior, circular stairway that wrapped around the tower.
  • The tower was made obsolete soon after its construction with the introduction of a modern water system, though it stood for many more years until 1949 when it was demolished.
  • This tower was located on South Cedar Street south of East Michigan Avenue on what is now the site of the water holding tanks for the John Dye Water Conditioning Plant.
