THE TANK HOUSE

History

When the tank house was in use, there was water pumped by a windmill, (later by an electric motorized pump), to an approximately 600 gallon galvanized tank (many were uncovered) at the top of the 3 story building.

The windmill would pump the water into the tank with the tank’s elevation providing the pressure to get water into the house. The 2nd story was used for sleeping quarters or storage. The ground floor, in some cases, was lined with brick and plaster or concrete and used as an above ground cellar. The Historical Society uses the building for storage.
