Cross Topped Water Tower

It's next to the Luce Physical Activities Center on the Asbury campus. You can park and walk right up to it.

The tower stands on the campus of a Christian college, although it makes no claim that it dispenses holy water.

Jesus Water Tower

For a "religious" addition to your water tower collection, I reverently submit the one in my tiny hometown: Wilmore, Kentucky. Atop the tower -- which sits on the Christian campus of Asbury College -- is a large cross. The cross can be seen from quite a distance away, even at night. Yes, the cross atop the water tower glows in the dark. Well, it's probably just lit normally, but you can see the glowing cross from miles away, seeming to float in the sky.
