The Compton Hill water tower is a stunning monument to an era when form and beauty were as important as function. The Tower, was designed by Harvey Ellis, for the firm of George R. Mann in 1897. Located in St Louis, MO it is one of only seven of these structures still standing in the United States. The Tower was an immediate tourist attraction and a highlight for visitors to St. Louis for the 1904 World’s Fair. The water tower is a standpipe encased in an architectural tower and was a critical part of the City’s early water system. The standpipe absorbed surges from the late-19th-century reciprocating water pumps, ensuring consistent water pressure. Because of its height in comparison to surrounding structures, a lantern was positioned at the windows at night to provide a point of reference to travelers. In use until 1929, today it stands as a historical monument to a time long past. Situated next the tower is a modern reservoir that has been designed to match the style of the Tower.
