The one million gallon peach.

Peachoid Water Tower

From the south it looks like a delicious peach. We couldn't figure out why people called it "the butt in the sky." Then we went around to the other side, which quickly replaced that mystery with another: what led this town to build something that looks like a giant butt in the sky?

The Peachoid Water Tower is also known throughout the region as "The Peach-Butt," and is used as a common reference point for interstate travelers.
