Water tower with globe top painted to resemble a peach.

Big Peach Water Tower

Field review by the editors.

Clanton, Alabama

On I-65 between Birmingham and Montgomery is an impressively large water tower resembling a peach. Chilton County is Alabama's peach central. Adjacent fruit stands and establishments like the Peach Tower Restaurant radiate a unified civic vitality.

Clanton's big peach is 120 feet tall, and holds 500,000 gallons of water -- but it ain't the biggest. The Peachoid in Gaffney, SC, is larger and double the volume.

Both were constructed by the Chicago Bridge & Iron Company: Gaffney's in 1980-81 and Clanton's in 1992.
