The Water Tower Revisited: 1870 and Beyond

A new exhibition devoted to the architectural history of Riverside’s Water Tower is currently on view in the recently restored Well House.  “The Water Tower Revisited:  1870 and Beyond” comprises a scale model of the Water Tower, architectural plans for adaptive use, and approximately 20 rarely exhibited images selected from the Museum’s collection of historic photographs.  It traces the history and evolution of Riverside’s iconic architectural symbol from its origins to the present and beyond.  
"The Water Tower Revisited:  1870 and Beyond" is organized by the Riverside Historical Commission and is funded, in part, by a grant from the Illinois Association of Museums and individual contributions.

The West Well House serves as an extension of our main exhibit space in the East Well House. 
We are open every Saturday from 10am - 2pm.
