Built in 1915, Humboldt's Historic Water Tower is one of only four such structures remaining in the province of Saskatchewan. The exterior design is striking due to its resemblance of a coastal lighthouse.
Abandoned over 25 years ago, the tower has suffered from exposure to the elements and years of neglect. Restoration of the historic landmark began in 2003 and continues along with ongoing fundraising efforts.
Humboldt's Water Tower Committee takes pride in the distinction of having the tower as only one of nine projects across Canada thus far selected as a part of the Heritage Canada Foundation Landmark Preservation Program.
