Old City Waterworks
The Old City Waterworks is a historic site located near downtown Tallahassee. In the city's early days, water was obtained from area springs. By the turn of the century, public works for water was needed for firefighting and the health of Tallahassee's citizens. The Old City Waterworks was built in 1904 and was Tallahassee’s first public utility facility and began urbanization of the city. It was remodeled in the 1920's to 1930's and closed in 1980, after being added to the US National Register of Historic Places on January 31, 1979. In 2007, it was restored with funding assistance from the Florida Department of State.

It's an historical place there, thanks so much for sharing all information and pictures!
It is an interesting story with nice pictures.
I would never guess that these photos were shot near downtown.
Wonderful historical post with shot.
A necessary kind of place.
A wonderful building with a great sense of style.
That is fascinating. There's something quite similar in Gainesville...surrounded by ponds of scummy, green water!
