Elk River water tower advances in quest for historic designation
A 92-year-old water tower in Elk River is a big step closer to being named to the National Register of Historic Places.
The Minnesota Historical Society’s State Review Board voted unanimously Tuesday, March 27, to move the nomination forward. “These are great small-town icons. They’re fantastic,” Bob Claybaugh said of the Elk River water tower. Claybaugh is a historic architect who chairs the State Review Board.
The water tower is located at Jackson Avenue and Fourth Street near downtown Elk River. See more in Associate Editor Joni Astrup’s Star News story.
