Swedish Coffee Pot Water Tower

Field review by the editors.

Kingsburg, California

Kingsburg is a Swedish theme town with a couple blocks of downtown decorated in a Nordic motif, complete with a Viking and Dala horse restaurant. The water tower originally dates from 1911, and was modified in 1985 to resemble a giant coffee pot. It is 122 feet tall and visible from Highway 99.

A town once of overwhelmingly Swedish descent, modern, diverse Kingsburg still pays tribute to its heritage with an annual festival.

Swedes as a people are known for their profligate coffee guzzling. The 60,000 gallon vessel, if it could tilt to fill waiting cups, could top off 960,000 cups.

The coffee pot is lit at night.
