Designed in 1867 by architect William W. Boyington, the Chicago Water Tower has been

the City's most cherished landmark for over a century. The Water

Tower was erected in

1869 to house a 13- 

foot-high, 3-foot diameter standpipe,

which served to equalize pressure and to minimize the pulsations of the

water flowing in the

mains.  Indigenous to Illinois, the tower was 

constructed using Joliet limestone block which later proved to be an invaluable decision. On the morning

of October 9, 1871, the 

city of  Chicago was

engulfed in the flames

of the Great Chicago Fire which leveled nearly every building in Chicago with

the exception of the

Water Tower.
