Standing Proud Since 1910

The water tower supplied the needs of Claresholm in the early days. Built in 1909 and completed in 1910, it used water pumped from Willow Creek to supply the requirements of the growing Town. The tower was originally black but repainted silver in the 1950s. A new water system made the tower obsolete in the 1980s, yet it still stands tall and proud as a beacon for those approaching the community. Historical reverence for the water tower played a large part in its inclusion in our Municipal Logo.
