Ear of corn water tower at Seneca Foods in Rochester.

Corn Water Tower

On a recent trip to Minnesota, we couldn't pass up an opportunity to see this gem! First of all, you can't miss it when you drive through Rochester. It "towers" over everything else in the area.

However, here is potentially bad news that we found out while we were there. We stopped at a coffee shop near the tower, and the lady working in the shop said that due to the fact that so many kids were trying to climb the water tower at night, the city was planning on either painting it or removing it completely. Whether this is true or not, we don't know, but we just wanted to pass on the information.
