Corn water tower.

Ear of Corn Water Tower

Field review by the editors.

Rochester, Minnesota

A uniquely shaped water tower, designed to resemble a husked ear of corn, stands above the old Libby Foods plant on the south end of Rochester. The facility is now owned by Seneca Foods, and the tower is a landmark relic.

The rumored plan to quell late night tower-climbing antics of local kids by repainting or demolishing the tower has not yet become a reality...
