Chicago Water Tower

Chicago Water Tower

Historic Chicago Water Tower

The Lake Michigan shoreline in northern Illinois, is home to the Windy City of Chicago. Whether flying into Chicago O'Hare International Airport or Chicago Midway International Airport, arrive in Chicago ready to enjoy a theater production, eat delicious food, shop and see the city landmarks. Make your way to downtown's Michigan Avenue, to view the historical Chicago Water Tower.

This 154-foot limestone tower, built in 1869, housed a 138-foot standpipe for holding water used for firefighting. It worked in conjunction with the Chicago Avenue Pumping Station, to pump fresh water from Lake Michigan for the city's use.

This beautiful city landmark resembling a castle, is one of a few historical buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. In 1969, it was designated the first American Water Landmark. While on the Magnificent Mile in the city's Near North Side community, stop by the visitor information center in the tower to learn more about its rich history. While there, spend a few minutes browsing the photographs in the City Gallery, housed in the tower.
