Nassau’s 1928 Water Tower
Nassau, New Providence
submitted by “Road Runner” (Bill)
The Water Tower was erected in 1928 to maintain water pressure on the island. It is 126 feet (38.5 meters) tall and provides a marvelous panoramic view of Nassau.
This historic Water Tower was built with funds provided by the United States Government to reward the Bahamas for Nassau’s role in storing bootleg liquor during Prohibition.
