Tyronza Water Tower – Tyronza AR

Description

“The Tyronza Water Tower is a historic elevated steel water tower located in Tyronza, Arkansas. It was built in 1935 by the Chicago Bridge & Iron Company in conjunction with the Public Works Administration as part of a project to improve the local water supply. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007, as part of a multiple-property listing that included numerous other New Deal-era projects throughout Arkansas. The Tyronza Water Tower is considered an excellent representation of 1930s-era waterworks construction.

In 2003, a new, 200,000-gallon steel water tower was built next to the 1935 tower, in conjunction with other water system improvements in the area. The old tower is still in use, however.”
