The tower was built in 1927 and was the main water supply in  the Sulphur Springs area for decades.

In 1989 it was designated a historic landmark , protecting it from demolition.




The Hillsborough River provides a serene setting for nature lovers young and old.


One of the doorways sealed many years ago to prevent entry.  Through the years, the tower had become a popular place for various types of criminal behavior.

The tower lighting ceremony afforded curious attendees an opportunity to see the inside of the tower.
