Well Tower

-A A +A
c. 1917–1923. Behind the house at 232 E. 2nd St.
  • Well Tower (Bret Morgan)

One of two well towers in the old residential neighborhood of Battle Mountain, this structure, containing a holding tank, stands atop a rectangular one-story building with a shed roof. Both components have board-and-batten siding, painted bright green, and corrugated metal roofs. The tower was probably used as late as 1931, when the town built its municipal water tower.
