Built in 1889 to serve the city’s water needs, this historic water tower was built by a group of local businessmen. Located on the bluff overlooking the Rock River, the Beloit Water Tower once contained a 100,000-gallon (378,541-liter) water tank made of cypress, and pressurized seven miles (11 kilometers) of pipes. It stands stagnant since 1935, after a newly constructed steel water tower with twice the capacity was built adjacent to it. Today, the Shingle Style pump house at its base now houses the Beloit Visitors Center. Once regarded as a great work of masonry in the west, the Beloit Water Tower was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
