Springfield G.
Description
The Springfield water tower was built at an unknown time. It would be included in the Southern vernacular seen around Springfield, Georgia beginning in the early 20th century for its utilitarian/industrial purposes. The metal water tower sits on the property next to the jailhouse for easy access and currently is located near other civic buildings. It has four piers supporting the circular water storage unit, with two lateral supports at equal intervals on the vertical structure. The four piers sit on concrete bases. It has a central pole going from the storage tank to the ground. There are ladders going up each pier support. Painted on the tank is “Springfield, Ga.” Around the water tower the land is cleared, free of vegetation. #ARCHITECTURE #COMMUNITY #EFFINGHAM_COUNTY #GA #HISTORIC_PRESERVATION #RESIDENTIAL #SOUTHERN_DWELLINGS #SPRINGFIELD #VERNACULAR
