West of downtown Sault Ste Marie near the Lake Superior State Campus is an old stone and brick water tower. The 45-foot diameter tower was constructed in 1894 and the steel tank inside holds 364,000 gallons of water. It is one of the oldest water towers in Michigan and was refurbished in 2010. That is when its wooden roof was replaced with a steel one.
P.S. If you are wondering, the oldest water tower in Michigan is in Ypsilanti. you can see my post HERE
