High Service Water Tower and Reservoir Wikipedia
The High Service Water Tower and Reservoir are a public water supply facility off Massachusetts Route 110 in Tower Hill, Lawrence, Massachusetts. The reservoir was constructed in 1874-75 to provide the city's public water supply, with a gatehouse designed by Charles T. Emerson, a Lawrence architect. The tower was built in 1896 as a high pressure standpipe or water tower. The tower stands 157 feet (48 m) high, and is built out of red brick with granite trim. It is Romanesque in its style, and was designed by George G. Adams, a noted local architect who had been taught by Emerson. The standpipe inside the tower is of steel construction and is 102 feet (31 m) in height. The area above the standpipe includes a balcony capped by a chateauesque roof, with round-arch windows providing views of the area. The main tower is octagonal in shape, with a narrow round staircase tower projection from one side.
The tower and reservoir were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
