Description 

This is a riveted steel water tower located in a small town. The tower is traditionally composed with built-up support beams (which include attractive v-lacing) and pin-connected support bracing connections. The tower may have been built by the Chicago Bridge and Iron Works (Also Called Chicago Bridge and Iron Company), which appears to have patented designs on water towers and built a majority of such water towers in the Midwest, particularly in the 1920s and 1930s.

This water tower does not appear in Google Street Views and as such it would appear the tower has been demolished.
