Mt. Washington Water Tower


Built in 1933, the Mt. Washington Water Tower is a local landmark that sits on the highest point on the East side of the city and can be seen for miles. The water tower is an Art Deco style tower made of concrete with a beacon on top. In the early days of Mt. Washington, a schoolhouse stood where the water tower is today. The water tower is located directly off from the business district and the Mt. Washington branch of the Cincinnati Public Library stands in the shadow of the tower. Every year at Christmas, the Moeller Knights of Columbus string lights from the top to the bottom of the water tower.
