A Memory of the Water Tower Being Built
I remember when the original standpipe was built by the WPA in the late 30's or early 40's when the water system was put in. We lived just east of the standpipe in a little house just north of the Methodist Church which has been torn down. There was a tornado while the standpipe was being built and there was a scaffold built on the south side to help w/pouring the concrete as it went up. This scaffold blew down during the tornado and went NE. If it had gone straight east, it would have hit our house!!
