Minneapolis

Washburn Water Tower

1932

Architect: Harry Wild Jones-1 E. Elmwood Place

Sculptor: John K. Daniels-322 Busch Terrace

Construction Engineer: William S. Hewitt-4600 Dupont Avenue

The 110-foot high tower can hold 1,350,000 gallons-nearly eight times the capacity of the old tower. It is drained in the fall and filled in the spring to provide a local head for water pressure throughout south Minneapolis during the summer.
