Water Tower @ Ha Ha Tonka

This water tower supplied the "Castle" with water pressure. Water was pumped into the tower from the Ha Ha Tonka Spring, 250 feet below. It did not burn in the 1942 fire that destroyed the Castle and Carriage House. It lasted until 1976 when the insides were burned by vandals before the area became a Missouri state park.
