Washburn Water Tower
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.
