Point of Interest Details

The City Water Works Building is located on the northeast corner of Lexington Avenue and Main Street. Built in 1910, the City Water Works building was designed by E. Hill Turnock. He chose to feature limestone, a red tile roof, and arched windows. The use of glass blocks in the first floor windows blended the structural integrity of the design and the creative use of natural, exterior lighting.

Your next tour stop is the Kuespert House, located at 149 Division Street. Continue through the stop light and turn right on Waterfall Drive, right onto East Street, then right onto Division.
