Smiley Face Water Tower.

Smiley Face Water Tower

In the village of Aroma Park, where I lived from about the age of 2 until almost 10, we had a smiley face water tower. Until recently I thought it was quite unique -- however, your website has shown me otherwise. I expected to see Aroma Park right next to all the other cities in Illinois with smiley face water towers -- I mean, where I'm from it's such a part of our town.

There's not much there, that water tower is about the only unique thing we have.
